Adams has three high major offers

Jalen Adams, a combination guard, now has three high major scholarship offers. Kansas State is the latest to give the 2015 prospect an offer.

Jalen Adams is starting to turn some heads in the northeast.

In just his sophomore season at Ashburnham (Mass.) Cushing Academy, Adams is averaging 16.2 points, seven rebounds and four assists per game.

"He's been incredible all year," Mass Rivals coach Vinny Pastore told "He had 34 points, 12 rebounds and five assists last night. He's one of those guys that is unique and is so athletic that they look so graceful."

"He's a scorer and is one of those guys that can control his body and score acrobatically," Pastore added. "He's also got some pretty good IQ. He's a combo guard that can handle it."

Adams, a 6-foot-1 guard, is known for his athleticism and ability to put up points.

"He can play above the rim, which is always fun to watch," Pastore said.

"He's a combo guard that is going to be able to play at the highest level," he added. "His IQ is so good. He's a good point guard when he plays it. But that's a dilemma with a kid that is a natural scorer. He's more of a scoring guard. He's a guy that can go get buckets."

According to Pastore, schools began tracking Adams in July with his Mass Rivals squad.

"A lot of people noticed him in the summer," Pastore said. "He was out with me in July. That's when UConn and Providence were following him everywhere we went. He has a couple of scholarship offers. Right now he has a ton of interest."

"Boston College is recruiting him," he added. "Kansas State was there last night. He's got Indiana."

Pastore said Adams has been to a couple of schools unofficially.

"He's been to the New England schools," he said. "We went down to UConn before the season start. We've been down to Providence."

Kansas State offered Adams Thursday afternoon. Providence and Connecticut have also offered Adams.
