Colorado adds basketball transfer

You could call Jeremy Adams an insurance policy covering the possibility of Alec Burks leaving for the NBA this summer, or you could simply call him a nice addition to the Colorado basketball program for next year. Get inside for more.

Jeremy Adams, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Mississippi, who originally committed to Texas A&M as part of the 2010 recruiting class, played this season at Navarro Junior College. He remained in contact with former Texas A&M director of basketball operations Mike Rohn, who is in his first season as an assistant coach in Boulder under head coach Tad Boyle.

Adams traveled to Boulder this week and watched the Buffs defeat Kent State in the National Invitation Tournament on Tuesday night. He told the Daily Camera newspaper that he had decided to come to Boulder next year.

CU had previously filled its available scholarschips with three signees from California in the early signing period in November in guards Askia Booker and Spencer Dinwiddie and forward Damiene Cain.

Landing Adams could be a sign that CU is planning to lose Burks to the NBA. However, if Burks returns for his junior year and all three of the early signees qualify academically, then Adams could still be added to the roster if another scholarship player either left the team or agreed to pay his own way next year.

Only time will tell which of those scenarios unfolds. In the meantime, Colorado appears to have landed a guard who was receiving major recruiting attention from schools across the nation late in his senior season of high school when he averaged 27 points and eight rebounds a game.
