  • Five-star Darius Adams recaps recruitment with four head coaches in at Nike EYBL Live Period

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Darius Adams, a five star rising senior out of La Lumiere (IN.) and the PSA Cardinals, had a strong EYBL Live Period, averaging 19.5 points across four games with college coaches in attendance for the first time this summer.

    “It felt great,” he said. “It was the first, which is obviously amazing. It’s great to play in front of college coaches and it’s a very competitive environment.”

    The 6-foot-4 combo guard had Tom Izzo (Michigan State), Nate Oats (Alabama), Mike Woodson (Indiana), and Dusty May (Michigan) at some of his games over the weekend. He holds offers from three of those schools, while May and Michigan have yet to re-offer since taking over, but he and Adams have been in contact.

    UConn’s Dan Hurley was also in attendance, though the Huskies have yet to reach out to Adams, he says.

    Adams is coveted for his three-way scoring ability and proves each game that he has next-level shot-creation, whether it be on the inside or behind the arc. 

    He previously took unofficial visits to Tennessee, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Indiana, and now will look to take official visits after the AAU summer season. He recapped his previous visits to ZAGSBLOG at HoopHall.

    “After summer I’ll probably be cutting down my list,” he said. “I’ll do visits then too.”

    Adams broke down the schools who were watching his game this past weekend.

    Michigan State: “That means everything, them continuing to show interest in me. I’m interested in them, and it means a lot.”

    From HoopHall: “One coach I would say impressed me a lot was Michigan State. He [Tom Izzo] because when we were at the football game he sat next to me and talked to me the whole time so that really meant something to me.”

    Alabama: “I’ve been in contact with them for a long time, very interesfed. It’s very important to see them at my games and now it’s just keep building the relationship with them.”

    Michigan: “They haven’t [reoffered] but I’ve been in contact with them. They told me he [May] would be here today so it’s just about continuing to build a relationship with them.”

    Indiana (previous visit): “It was a really good experience just talking to [MikeWoodson and watching the football game. It was Indiana vs. Ohio State so it was a pretty cool game.”
