You guys got a good one. We heard here in MS that Colorado was the leader. Hate to see him go so far from MS. I watched him all through high school and was hoping to see him play in college. I wish him and all of you the best. Obviously I am a bit biased in my opinion so Im posting internet info to help you guys get to know him. We have another player here in MS, that I heard CU was also interested in- LeAntwan Luckett from Ridgeland, MS. You heard anything on him
Intenet info on Jeremy.

ESPN February, 2009: Jeremy is true shooting guard who can really fill it up. He's had a few 40-point games for Madison Central this season, which doesn't come as a surprise. He can shoot the 3-poointer, he can come off screens, he can hit mid-range jump shots, he can take smaller defenders to the hoop and he can even post-up in the right scenarios. Bottom line is he's a natural scorer. Adams flew under the radar over the past year because of an injury to his back so he really didn't get the exposure that other high-major recruits did. Once he got healthy, though, his play really turned some heads. Adams needs to improve on his defense and rebounding in order to make an early impact at College Station. He's a good, not great, athlete so he really needs to work hard on his defensive positioning and footwork. He also needs to become a better rebounder in order to compete night in and night out in the Big 12. Overall, head coach Mark Turgeon and his staff love Jeremy's ability to score and knock down open shots. He possesses a lot of upside and will be a great fit scoring set plays and in transition.
Travel Team: Jackson Tigers...Averaged 27.2 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 4.2 apg and 4.2 spg as a senior...
I'm really excited about Adams. I think he and Carlon Brown will really complement each other and give us great scoring options from the "2" and the wing next season.
We're very aware of Luckett and are high on him. The question at this point is whether we're recruiting another 2/3 wing scorer after getting Adams' commitment or if Boyle will turn his attention to more frontcourt help.
If we get that type of production from him up here then Burks leaving won't sting so bad. Average around 25 points and raise the rebounds to around 10 and we would be doing very well. Plus if he is consistent behind the arc losing Levi won't hurt as much either.
i have not heard anyone from navarro report this info. r u certain. i have been monitoring sites from schools i saw come in for practice or games- az state, ucla, usc, seton hall, boston college, clemson, ole miss, alabama, georgia, utah state, - i may have missed some but i am on campus here and personally saw these schools come in on recruiting visits. how did colorado beat out these more well know programs and why haven't i seen this reported anywhere else?
Adams told our local paper at the game last night (unofficial visitor) that he has given a verbal commitment. That article was linked earlier in this thread. BDC LINK
Also, there is a premium Scout article that published this morning: Scout LINK
2. We are Colorado. I guess those other programs just couldn't keep up with us."I like it," Adams said of the campus and the environment at

the Coors Events Center before the Buffs' historic victory. "I knew what Boulder was like, but since I've been here it's been even nicer than I thought it was."
Adams plans to sign with CU during the spring recruiting period in May. He isn't even thinking about trying to fill Burks' shoes if the sophomore star makes the NIT Final Four in New York his collegiate swan song.
"I'm just coming out here to try and play the best I can," Adams said.

3. Why would you need it reported anywhere else? It was reported here. Not to mention in the newspaper in Boulder.

Had Jeremy picked CU over Kansas, Duke, Florida, or some other team that is annually a top 4 seed in the tourney then it would be a news story but for a kid to pick an up and coming program that plays a system that fits his game and has a school and environment that appeals to him over the other schools listed on Corsicanas list is not a big surprise.
Welcome to the Black-n-Gold, young man!
We should have listened to Colorado fans.
no offense meant, just asking. don't know alot bout colorado but u will have to admit the bball history is not the same as ucla, usc, bama, seton hall for example, all have made deep tourney runs in their history. n utah st was a top 25 team this year. hey more power to ya. i have been educated and have new respect for the program.
