Brothers After the Whistle

Their bond was inseparable. Through the battleground that is Texas high school football and the recruitment process, their relationship remained solid. So much so, it played a significant part in their recruitment, landing them at the University of Houston together.

“This was our first offer together,” Adams said. “It didn’t matter where we went, we had the skill set to separate ourselves, and Houston was a big platform. We came here to make something happen and it’s paying off well.”

The trio sat down during the recruiting process and decided to choose the same path. A few years later, they are now staples in the Houston Football program. Adams and Khalil are in their final season as Cougars, while Joeal will have one season of eligibility remaining.
