Kendall Tyler-Jacob Adams (b. Aug. 28, 1995) is a promising safety prospect from TCU's backyard who is very likely to redshirt given the experienced depth we return at the safety positions.

Adams lettered three years for All Saints Episcopal High School under head coach Aaron Beck, including his senior year, in which he earned All-Southwest Preparatory Conference honors and helped to win a state championship.

He was rated the nation's 67th-best safety by after he also helped the Saints to win a state championship as a junior. He registered 226 tackles and 10 interceptions in his prep career.

Adams also totaled 1,491 career receiving yards and 21 touchdowns on 86 receptions during his career, including his senior season, in which he hauled in 47 receptions for 981 yards and 14 scores.

He also lettered in basketball, earning first-team All-SPC honors two times. Adams is a strong student who was selected to the National Society of High School Scholars. You can watch his high school highlights here.

Although he is a promising and rangy safety prospect with nearly identical size to Sean Newlan, Adams also shows strong potential as a wide receiver. He has been listed variously at both positions throughout the summer.
