Wink's Wonderful World

Houston Gulfshores point guard Jovan Adams very excited about what he has found at the University of Arkansas this weekend on his official visit.

It's pretty good to be Jovan "Wink" Adams right now.

Adams, one of the nation's top point guards, is visiting the University of Arkansas this weekend after previous visits to Oklahoma (unofficial) and UNLV (official) and they all have shown him the love.

He was not bashful about how much he is enjoying this weekend's trip to Fayetteville.

"Arkansas has been just wonderful," Adams said. "Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be this great. I thought it would be just some country town, but it's not. Fayetteville is a great city. This arena is the best I have ever seen, the coaches and players are great and the fans - oh, man they are just the best."

Adams, a 6-1, 190-pound prospect from Houston Gulf Shores who averaged 34 points and 8 rebounds, will admit he is a bit impressionistic.

"Yes, I have had a great visits at each place and they have all been better than I thought they would be," Adams said. "But Arkansas has just been the best. It's just great. I think I can be a great player for them. I want to play for their fans. They have one team and they all love the players."

Adams noted everybody knew his name and cheered for him when he, his mom and the coaches walked into a Fayetteville eatery on Friday night.

"That was just amazing," Adams said. "They all do that cheer (Woo Pig Sooie) and my mom really loves doing that. The fans were all like my new best friends. Everybody was saying hi and telling me how much they wanted me to come play for Arkansas."

Adams played with Arkansas players on Saturday and was especially impressed with 6-7 Razorback sophomore Ronnie Brewer.

"He's just a great player and someone that would be a lot of fun to play on the same court with," Adams said. "He can do it all. They've really got some great players here and I can tell they are going to be really good and I can certainly see myself being the point guard for this team."

He is slated to return to Oklahoma for an official visit on Sept. 17-19, but says that probably won't happen.

"I am thinking that's not going to happen," Adams said. "I think it's a great possibility that I get this over with very soon."

Adams has come close to committing to the teams on his previous two spots, even sparking some reports that he had done so. Make it three for three.

"I really, really like Arkansas," Adams said. "I think this is where I am going to end up."
