Adams commits to Connecticut
Jalen Adams, a 2015 prospect out of Ashburnham (Mass.) Cushing Academy, made his college choice on Monday. Mass Rivals coach Vinny Pastore confirmed the news to Scout.com. "I think one is they've been recruiting him and recruiting him very hard for a long, long time," Pastore said. "That was one. I think two, I don't think there's any question it's one of the couple places that was a perfect fit for him." "They've always been guard oriented and let their guards do their thing," he added. "It's a great place for a dynamic guard. It's a perfect fit for him." The 6-foot-2 guard also had scholarship offers from Kansas, Louisville, Creighton, Georgia Tech, Minnesota and a host of other schools. "The feeling in our camp was he was first on Connecticut's list," Pastore said. "They made it pretty clear that the one guy they wanted was Jalen Adams." "At the end of the day, it was perfect," Pastore said. "This kids dream was to go to UConn. He kept to his dream. He always saw himself in an UConn uniform." Adams is known for his ability to score. An impressive athlete, Adams is skilled and makes shots from mid-range out to the three-point stripe. Adams, a four-star prospect, is ranked as the No. 55 overall prospect and the No. 15 shooting guard in the 2015 class. Connecticut now has a pair of commitments in the 2015 class. Adams joins four-star guard Will Jackson to make up their current recruiting class.
