"I can compare him to Lou Roe who had a great career for Massachusetts," said Papile. "Lou did an awful lot for the program at Massachusetts for four years. Jeff is the same type of player. Every night Jeff is a candidate for a quadruple double -- rebounds, blocks, points, and steals."
Papile said don't be deceived by his height -- somewhere between 6-5 and 6-6. "Against 6-foot-10 players, he outquicks them," Papile said. "Against players his size, he outjumps them. He has good hops and he is tough. He is not your average undersized power forward because he has a wing span of 7-foot-3."
Adrien also has interest from UCLA and Iowa State. Iowa State had offered a while ago. There has been some question in whether UCLA had offered. Papile told us last night the Bruins had. But whether UCLA has offered or not doesn't derail from the fact Adrien has had a great summer.
He is currently competing for BABC at the Peach Jam event in South Carolina. He put up 21 points in a recent game against Kevin Rogers, one of the top players in the 2005 class. "He is a special player because he can guard bigger people," Papile said. "He is a great traffic rebounder."
