Recruit Video Tourney: #3 Odell Beckham Jr. vs. #6 Jamal Adams

The next matchup pits a wide receiver who just finished his LSU career going up against a safety that has yet to start his, but could have a similar impact.

We continue onward with only two matchups left in the first half of the bracket. The offense finally picked up another win after losing the last few contests, but the defense has a good shot at reversing that trend here. Jamal Adams did a little bit of everything for Hebron as his highlights show, while Odell Beckham Jr. gave a preview of things to come as a wide receiver. Which one moves on? Let's go to the tape:

No. 3 Seed Odell Beckham Jr.

While John Battle may have the best music in his highlight video, Odell Beckham Jr. may have the best moment in the highlight videos, and it's not even something he did. The guy filming the footage appears to be in the opponent's press box on occasion and a reaction from one of the coaches is probably something others reiterated at the high school and college level when watching Odell terrorize their defense. Beckham Jr. showcases his speed and agility that made him an asset at LSU for that high-flying offense last year and helped make him a likely first round selection next year.

No. 6 Seed Jamal Adams

Jamal Adams showed his versatility by doing a little bit of everything at Hebron, playing quarterback, wide receiver, safety and returner. When teams have a 5-star athlete on their team, they tend to use them in any way that they can, which was easy to do with a guy like Adams. While their isn't much footage of him playing his college position as a safety, it is apparent that Adams speed and athleticism will be making quarterbacks rethink their decision on throwing a deep ball.

The 3-6 matchup usually creates some hard-fought matchups in the regular NCAA Tournament and this one may be no exception. Both players are superb athletes that put that on display throughout their footage. Will it be the wide receiver that brings opposing coaches to the cussing stage, or will it be the do-it-all college safety? Only your votes can decide.

Two Things To Remember:

1. You are voting on who has the best VIDEO. Not who you think will be better at LSU, not who you think will project to be a better NFL player. You are judging the two videos above.

2. You have until Thursday at midnight to cast your vote for your selection before the poll closes and we move on to our next matchup later that morning.
