UNC commit Jordyn Adams will sign with Angels, forgo college career

On Monday night, the Los Angeles Angels selected Jordyn Adams with the 17th overall pick in the MLB Draft. Adams, who was committed to North Carolina, will not play college football or baseball in Chapel Hill; instead, Adams will sign with the Angels. He could receive a contract from the Angels with a value of $3.4 million — or at least that’s the slotted value of the No. 17 pick. Adams could receive more or less.

Jordyn Adams was a big in-state commitment for Larry Fedora over last summer; the 6-foot-2 wide receiver pledged to UNC no long after attending the program’s camp. In December, Adams signed with the Heels during the early signing period.

Rated as a high-level 4-star receiver by 247 Sports — the consensus No. 58 overall prospect in the 2018 class — Adams was believed to be a difference-maker for the Tar Heels. That, however, will not be the case.

His father, Deke Adams, is the defensive line coach for North Carolina.
