Rivals.com Basketball Recruiting Analyst
Perhaps the fasting rising unsigned prospect in the senior class Jeremy Adams whittled his recruitment down to two schools before making it official on Wednesday that he will play in the Big 12.
Adams is a big-bodied wing scorer. With only mid-major offers during the early signing period, Adams, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound shooting guard from Madison (Miss.) Central High School, will now sign with Texas A&M during the spring signing period. After a weekend trip where he visited his two finalist Arkansas and Texas A&M, Adams was convinced that Texas A&M was the best fit for him.
"In the end it came down to my relationship with the coaches and players," Adams told Rivals.com.
"On my visit I just clicked with everyone and could really see myself playing there in the future."
Adams, who averaged 27 points, eight rebounds, three assists and three steals per game this year, will now focus his attention on getting his game to where he can be an instant contributor next year.
"The coaches told me how much I play is up to me," he said. "I want to get better at everything, but I know I need to improve defensively because the players at this level are so much better than what I've played against in high school."
Adams is the fifth Texas A&M commitment in the 2009 class. He joins four-star prospect Naji Hibbert and three-star prospects Khris Middleton , Kourtney Roberson and Ray Turner .
