Adams adjusting to new role
Three-star guard Ako Adams has a bit of a different role this year. The Arlington (Va.) Bishop O’Connell product is making a bit of an adjustment to playing the point guard position this season. Never in high school or AAU previously had Adams played point guard. He also has been someone who did his damage off the ball, but now the 6-foot-3 guard is running the show at O’Connell and he says it is a work in progress. “I’m working through it,” said Adams of the adjustment. “It is going to take some time, but I feel like I’m getting there. I just have to keep working and get better.” If Adams throughout the year can prove to be a viable option at both point guard and shooting guard that will only raise his stock more in the eyes of college coaches. Already he is getting significant recruiting attention. “I have offers from DePaul, Towson, Charlotte, Lehigh, and interest from Miami, Notre Dame, Stanford, and a couple of other schools,” noted Adams. At this point visits aren’t a major focus for Adams, though he says he intends to take a few of those in the near future. He does however have a pretty good idea of what he will be looking for in a school when the time does come to narrow things down. “I look for an offense that spreads the floor and a place with good academics that I have a good relationship with the coaches,” said Adams. Adams will have a chance to impress running with the DC Thunder during the AAU season as well as finishing up this high school season participating in the always tough WCAC.
