Judson SG Offered

The Judson Rockets can usually be counted on to be one of Greater San Antonio's better basketball programs. This rising junior is one of their top talents and now he's got a Texas State offer.

Over the summer the Judson Rockets have seen the loss of some key players, graduated seniors and transfers. Shelby Adams is an up and coming junior who is looking to step up and take advantage of any opportunity he gets.

The 6'3" 185lb shooting guard splashed onto the scene as a sophomore for the Rockets, and showed that he's a skilled player who has athleticism and gets after it on defense. That play also followed him to the AAU circuit this summer as he ran with SA Dream Team 2017, and he's now got two offers, Sam Houston State and Texas State have offered. Along with interest from TCU and Weber State.

The Bobcats just offered Adams on Thursday and he got to speak with Head Coach Danny Kaspar after getting the offer.

"They told me how competitive I was, how hard I played at the team camp. Coach Kaspar was sitting at the table watching everything and the refs weren't calling any fouls and he liked how I played through it and not let them get into my head," said Adams. "They just told me that after I camped there they really liked me. Coach Kaspar said he really wanted me."

Sam Houston State was his first offer, but that doesn't have any negative impact for the 'Cats as Texas State is a program that has his full attention.

"I think Texas State is a cool school, how serious Coach Kaspar sounds and it's not that far from San Antonio, it's close to home," said Adams. "They've told me they were interested in me before the team camp. When I went there, I had to play hard and show them that I'm really a good player."

With the AAU circuit done for the summer, that does give Shelby a little time to workout at his team gym or even possibly take some visits. Before the start of class in late August, Adams does have plans on visiting SHSU and taking in Huntsville.

Just a junior, look for Adams to pick up more offers. He's an athletic two guard who can beat you by slashing to the hole or will dial it up from deep and use the mid range jumper as well. Defensively, he uses his athleticism and leaping ability to block shots, although only 6'3", disrupt passing lanes, and will guard you full court.

Looking forward to the UIL season, he and his Judson teammates will have that much of a tougher task in navigating the waters because of key player loses, but Adams is focused on winning, and expects his team to still have all the pieces to contend for a State Championship.
