UMHB football standout invited to Arizona Cardinals minicamp

BELTON, TX (KXXV) -

Former University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football player Haston Adams is the latest Cru standout to get a shot with the National Football League. Adams signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent shortly after the completion of the 2018 NFL Player Draft Saturday night (April 28th) and will participate in the team's rookie minicamp next month.

Adams, a four-year letterman at defensive tackle from Beckville High School, capped his career by earning All-American honors from the American Football Coaches Association, D3football.com and the Associated Press. He was named American Southwest Conference Defensive Player of the Year after recording 47 total tackles, 20.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. Adams also broke up three passes and forced a fumble as a senior. Adams was a Cliff Harris Award Finalist in 2017. He was a two-time All-American and three-time ASC All-Conference selection at UMHB and finished his career among the Cru's career leaders with 58.5 tackles for loss and 21.0 sacks. Adams also returned a pair of fumbles for touchdowns and posted 166 total tackles in his four seasons. He played for the 2016 NCAA Division III National Championship Team and was a member of four NCAA postseason qualifiers and four ASC Championship Teams during his time with the Cru.

Adams will report to the Cardinals minicamp on May 11th. He joins Jerrell Freeman, Nate Menkin, Damian Davis, Javicz Jones and Teidrick Smith as former Cru players to appear in NFL minicamps.
