HATTIESBURG—If first-year Southern Miss football coach Todd Monken has his way, the battle to be the team’s starting quarterback this season will be a short one.

A last-minute visit to Hattiesburg ultimately paid off in the form of a scholarship offer for Oxford High quarterback Parker Adamson to play for Southern Miss. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Adamson signed with USM this morning after receiving an offer from first-year head coach Todd Monken Tuesday morning.
Monken was able to extend the offer to Adamson, the Oxford EAGLE Player of the Year in 2012, with little time to spare in relation to his final decision being made.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Coaching changes obviously have a large impact on the recruiting world and one in-state change could pay off for the Rebels in their pursuit of 6-foot-3 Pearl receiver D.J. Thompson.
Thompson was verbally committed to Southern Miss prior to coach Larry Fedora taking over the North Carolina gig, and still is a Golden Eagle pledge, although he admitted on Friday he’s “not as firm” as he was. (more…) (December 14, 2011, Page 6)
