GoMids.com talks with Navy commit Adam Teague

Adam Teague is a versatile, multi-purpose player who has played every position in high school. He was selected as his conferences player of the year as a junior and is currently leading his league in 3-point shooting accuracy. Read on to find out more about this talented prospect and how he came to commit to the United States Naval Academy.

Adam Teague (6-7, 215) of Fred T. Foard high school in Hickory, N.C. excels at both the 2 and 3 positions and can also play point guard or the post. Teague was selected as his Conference Player of the Year as a junior and was a member of an all area team, which comprised the best players from a four county area. He was also selected to the All-Conference and All-Conference Tournament teams.

Appalachian State, Davidson, Army, Air Force, Bucknell, Wofford, Western Carolina and Lehigh were among the schools recruiting Teague. Appalachian State, Davidson, Army and Air Force all offered the talented North Carolinian.

"I became interested in Navy when Devoe was there (Don Devoe, former Navy head coach). My dad and me had talked about it some. At first during my sophomore year I hadn't been recruited real hard because I hadn't been seen. My AAU team had never been to Nationals before. I went to Navy camp last summer and I talked to them and they had started recruiting me", said Teague.

"When coach Devoe retired we kind of stopped contact because they had the new staff. West Point and Air Force started recruiting me. Then one day Navy assistant coach John Krikorian sent an email to my Dad because they were looking through their stuff and had seen that I had come to camp and they weren't recruiting me. I started talking to Coach Krikorian on the phone and I talked to Coach Lange a lot. I really liked what he was about and what he is trying to do there, offensively and team wise. He wants to build the program back to what it was in the 90s when they were winning conference tournaments and going to NCAAs. I took an unofficial visit in August and I took an official about a month later and I committed. I had narrowed it down to Navy, Appalachian State and Air Force", continued Teague.

Teague, who is very accurate from behind the arc (40%), is currently averaging 21.5 points and 8 rebounds a game. Fred T. Foard is 15-5 overall and 6-2 in conference play.
