2019 guard Jordyn Adams ended his college recruitment on Saturday during an unofficial visit to Baylor, his father tells Scout.
"We are very excited right now," Robert Adams said.
"The culture and the just the atmosphere and the focus on the education, it was like a deal breaker for us," the elder Adams continued. "We want to make sure that he’s at an institution that is going to help his basketball, but also help him graduate. That’s the main focus, getting his education."
Although young, Adams had already secured scholarship offers from Oklahoma State and TCU, plus accumulated interest from Texas A&M, Oklahoma and LSU.
But ultimately the 6-foot-3, 165-pound guard out of Silsbee (Tex.) High knew he wanted to be a Bear while playing pick up ball with the current team.
"He just loved the atmosphere," his father said. "He met the guys. He played with them and the chemisty he felt. He said, ‘Dad this is home.’"
Adams is Baylor's first pledge in the 2019 recruiting class.
