Adams Making Sense of Schools

With the biggest summer of his life in the rearview mirror, Middle Creek wing Garrius Adams reflects on what happened and where he is with his recruitment.

At the end of the day, it was a summer that he couldn't have drawn up any better. Garrius Adams, a 6-foot-4 wing out of Apex (N.C.) Middle Creek, cranked up his recruitment to a completely new level.

"It really couldn't have gone any better," Adams said. "It started out with High Point and East Carolina and now I have these ACC schools. I probably couldn't dream it up any better."

As of Sunday, Adams was feeling Miami, South Carolina, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech. "I'm still kind of getting calls from different schools right now. There's a group of schools that are calling me more than others."

Adams may visit Miami Sept. 6 and potentially South Carolina August 28. Neither is set in stone but both should garner official visits.

All summer long, East Carolina consistently sent its entire staff to see him. The C-USA program was there first but has an uphill battle against its ACC neighbors.

"I think I've handled them well," Adams said. "I'm close with Coach LaBerrie. It's one of those situations that even if I don't go to East Carolina he'll support me. He's more of a mentor right now. They're a very friendly coaching staff. I think they 100% support my deal."

North Carolina State, the program he's geographically closest to, has offered. "They called after most of the other schools did. That's no problem but they're going to sign two shooting guards and if I'm the third that might not fit me too well. They're on the list. I'm not sure how all the playing time will work out."

For the programs recruiting Adams, he's looking for one simple detail. "It's time. If they have the time to call me or write me an email, they're giving me a good perspective of what it'll be like in college. I know I'm going to work hard for them once I get to college in the gym, weight room and track. It'll be a team effort."
