Offers Arrive For Adams

Jeremy Adams has used a stellar senior season to pick up high major scholarship offers. Four schools have tossed offers his way and he's planning to set up visits after the season.

At the beginning of January, Jeremy Adams didn't have a single high major scholarship offer. Fast-forward a month and the 6-foot-4, 195-pound senior holds four offers and is starting to develop his list.

South Florida, Arkansas, Texas A&M and Virginia are the schools that have offered. While Marquette, Miami, Virginia Tech, Kentucky and North Texas are monitoring the situation.

"It might get a little overwhelming sometimes, but its better to have it than not to have it," Adams said of the recent developments in his recruitment.

Although the process began recently, Adams is starting to cipher between the messages from college coaches. There are three schools that have established themselves at the top and he's planning to visit each.

"Texas A&M, Arkansas and South Florida really like me," the Madison (Miss.) Central standout said. "I'm planning on taking visits to those three schools and I'm going to set up another one probably to Virginia."

"They've just been showing a lot of interest," he said when asked why those three stood out. "I think Texas A&M is showing the most interest of those three and they just started recruiting me a couple weeks ago. It seems like they really want me. I'm really interested in Texas A&M, as well as Arkansas and South Florida."

Last week Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Houston, Kentucky and Virginia were at his game, and tonight when Adams and his squad start the divisional playoffs he's expecting Texas A&M and Miami to be in attendance.

Adams, who is averaging 27 points and eight rebounds a game, is planning to hash out a decision once his senior season ends.

"I really haven't thought that far ahead because I'm waiting for season to be over," he said. "When the season ends I'm going to sit down and talk with my dad and talk about the best system to play in and school."

Despite a recently injury, Adams has come back strong and has hopes of closing out the season with a playoff run.

"I'm playing fine," Adams said. "I've had 30 and 29 the past two games and I'm starting to get back to my healthy self after the injury. I'm getting my explosiveness back."
