The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Milledgeville Baldwin (Ga.) junior big man received the scholarship offer from Georgia head man Dennis Felton on Monday – about 48 hours after the Bulldogs coach watched a trimmed-down Adams in a victory against Senario Hillman's Wilkinson County team.
He accepted Felton's offer without hesitation.
``It felt good," Adams said. "When they called, I was in the middle of practice – but I talked to them anyway. They told me they wanted me and I was like, ‘ok'."
Adams has dropped about 50 pounds and runs the court much better than he did in the spring and summer. He finished with 17 points and 6 rebounds in the victory on Saturday night despite sitting nearly the entire third quarter due to foul trouble.
``He's a stud," Baldwin coach Lenwood May said of his star player.
``I like the style of play – and it's close to home," he said.
