    After redshirting at Texas A&M, Adams has averaged 12.4 PTS / 3.5 REB / 1.4 AST / 1.4 STL for Navarro while shooting 35% from 3 pt range.

    The CU staff's connections to Turgeon's staff at Texas A&M is obviously at play here. Adams was a prospect they had been pretty excited about out of high school due to him being a pure scorer who can fill it up from all over the court. For whatever reason, it didn't work out and he's back on the market with 3 years to play 3.

    So does this mean we are done with this year's recruiting? We already have 4 commits now.

    Yep. You are allowed 13 scholarship players. We have 9 returning and then 4 incoming. Obviously if Burks or someone else leaves we would have another to give out.

    Shocked the BDC broke this. They are usually a couple days late.

    Not done.

    Boyle had been saying "1 or 2 more".

    So who do we have coming back?

    Scholarship (10):Burks, Sharpe, Tomlinson, Roberson, Dufault, Eckloff, Brown, Mills, Tunks, Chen

    Commitments (4):Dinwiddle, Booker, Cain, Adams

    Figuring that Chen will likely lose his scholarship this year (that was expected), that puts us at 13. Boyle has said a few times that he was still looking? Does he think Burks is gone? or is there one of the old guys leaving early? Or possibly is he thinking of redshirting Mills?

    Now. We already served that penalty and our scores are expected to be good enough from 2009-10 to be out of the penalty.

    Redshirting someone doesn't change anything as far as the scholarship count.

    Burks isn't expected to return.

    You are getting a good one in Jeremy Adams

    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.


    High School Bio

    Rated as the No. 2 player in Mississippi by ESPN after averaging 27.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 4.2 steals as a senior at Madison Central ... earned all-state honors ... had three 40-point scoring games and earned all-division, all-metro and all-state honors ... twice scored 43 points in a game ... led team to three straight district titles ... coached by Jeff Heath ... played AAU basketball with the Jackson Tigers and Birmingham Storm, where he was teammates with DeMarcus Cousins (Kentucky) and Shauressy Smith (Mississppi State) ... also recruited by Arkansas, Notre Dame, Kentucky, Georgetown, Alabama , Wake Forest, Miami (Fla.), Florida State and Georgia.

    Personal

    Jeremy Michael Adams is the son of Jim and Teresa Adams of Madison, Miss. ... born Oct. 15, 1990 in Brandon, Miss. ... undecided major ... father played football (offensive line) at Delta State, where was an All American and he is a member of the school's Hall of Fame ... a sister, Madison Adams, played at Tennessee State and a cousin, Courtney Fells, played at North Carolina State ... father is a motivational speaker ...mother is a marriage therapist.... favorite NBA player is the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant ... enjoys reading and writing.

    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.
    Notes

    Travel Team: Jackson Tigers...Averaged 27.2 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 4.2 apg and 4.2 spg as a senior...

    Thanks, mcjagfan.

    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.

    is this a done deal?

    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?

    Mike Rohn joined our staff from Texas A&M. Boyle and Turgeon are best friends. There's some cooperation there.

    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

    1. If we take Jeremy at his word, I think we're pretty sure. This quote is from the Boulder Daily Camera article linked earlier in the thread...

    2. We are Colorado. I guess those other programs just couldn't keep up with us.

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

    Obviously nothing is done until the signature is on the letter but as others have pointed out, he was here and made comments to the paper last night stating he committed. While it may be hard to think CU pulled this off, the team is up and coming and performing well in a packed house. The environment last night at the Foam Dome was pretty incredible for an NIT game on Tuesday during Spring break. Tadd has this team playing an exciting style of bball that is going to be appealing to a lot of kids. He is also a pretty good salesman and is selling what we are building. We also have a state of the art basketball facility being built and I am sure the kid saw the committment CU is making to bball. The incoming class is a good one. CU has a once in a lifetime chance to turn this thing around and it appears they are selling it well. The question in the future may well not be how did CU pull this off but who will CU be pulling in. Go BUFFS!

    Also Corsicana list a number of very good schools who may have been interested in Jeremy's services but none of those schools are head and shoulders above where CU is right now. Most got into the tourner but as lower seeds, a couple of wins and CU is in and seeded equivelently or higher than they are. Tad is credited with bringing his last team (UNC) to being a tourney team and all indications are that he will do the same 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.

    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.
