Montravius Adams made the day of Auburn Tigers fans by announcing he would be spending his collegiate career with the Tigers.
Adams didn't just make the announcement verbally, either; he had a custom t-shirt made to declare his intentions. It shows a ton of school spirit—even if it is a tacky-looking shirt.

Solid #NSD gimmick — Nation's No. 2 DT Montravius Adams rockin' a custom #Auburn shirt with his face on it. #WarEagle http://t.co/faYIgz5t2013-2-6 14:57:38
The 6'4" 310-pound defensive tackle is recognized as a 5-star prospect by 247Sports, and he had just completed his visit to Auburn on Feb. 1. New head coach Gus Malzahn and his coaching staff obviously made a huge impression on the very huge young man from Vienna, Ga.
They beat out his hometown Georgia Bulldogs, the Clemson Tigers and the two-time defending BCS champion Alabama Crimson Tide for his services.
The Tigers are poised to have a dominant defensive line over the next three years. In the SEC, being strong up front is imperative, and the Tigers went a long way in strengthening their future in the trenches this recruiting season.
Adams joins other top-rated recruits designated to wreak havoc on opposing offensive lines. He and fellow 5-star prospects defensive linemen Carl Lawson and Elijah Daniel all took their recruiting visits to Auburn together (Fan Sided).
Apparently, there was a bit of a bond formed between the three young studs, and together they could be something special for the Tigers.
Landing Adams puts the final touches on what has to be considered a hugely successful recruiting class for Auburn.
To gain a top-10 ranked class on the heels of a 3-9 season is exceptional. If Adams and the other Tigers recruits can trigger a quick return to glory, they can wear as many air-brushed shirts as they want.
The next model might just read: BCS champions.
