Adams adds offers

2015 scorer Jalen Adams added a Kansas offer on Tuesday. The talented guard also discussed his game, Connecticut's interest and he cited four schools that stick out to him.

Jalen Adams is starting to establish himself as one of the premier scorers in the 2015 class.

A 6-foot-2, 165-pound guard out of Ashburnham (Mass.) Cushing Academy, Adams can get his points in a variety of ways. At the recent Hoop Hall Classic, Adams made threes with ease, knocked down mid-range pull-ups and mad athletic plays at the rim.

"I think being able to hit jump shots has really opened up things for me to be able to drive to the basket," Adams told

I've definitely been in the gym working out and doing a lot of shooting drills with Kaleb [Joseph]," he added. "I'm trying to become a point guard too."

As a scorer, Adams knows he has a lot of value playing off the ball, but he wants to be skilled enough where he can play on the ball if needed.

"It's not that I want to be [a point guard], but I want to be able to play the point guard and the two guard and whatever it takes for me to stay on the floor."

Adams' increased output on the court has led to plenty of attention off of it. Adams currently has scholarship offers from Connecticut, Minnesota, Providence, Rhode Island, Creighton, Kansas State, Georgia Tech and Kansas.

"I think it's been up a lot since the start of the year," Adams said of his recruitment.

The Jayhawks offered Adams on Tuesday, just a week after watching him playing at the Hoop Hall Classic.

"I love it and [I'm] pumped that they are recruiting me and I want to get up there and check it out," Adams said of the recent offer.

Connecticut head coach Kevin Ollie and an assistant were present at the Hoop Hall event to see Adams, who visited UConn for their midnight madness festivities in October. Connecticut offered early and has clearly prioritized the talented guard.

"He's a great guy and I love the system they run up there – a lot of guard free play," Adams said." Plus Ollie knows what it takes to make it. He's been there."

When asked if any school or schools stuck out to him right now, Adams cited Connecticut, Minnesota, Kansas and Creighton. He said those four schools are recruiting him the hardest.

Adams, who plays with Vinny Pastore and Mass Rivals on the spring and summer circuit, also has received interest from West Virginia and Notre Dame.
