The top unsigned prospect from Arizona’s loaded 2014 class was Westview High School’s 6-foot-9 gruadated post prospect Andre Adams. Considered as the top available unsigned post prospect in the country by some national scouting services and media outlets across the country, Adams made his decision to attend an elite-level prep school in Florida – electing to attend a post-graduate year at IMG Academy in Florida.
IMG Academy is widely known nationally for developing some of the nation’s elite level high school prospects, as the program has very impressive facilities and resources for their athletes. The facilities at IMG Academy are unreal and superior to most division-I college programs across the country.
Adams (pictured left) is currently attending IMG Academy and seems to really be enjoying himself and his teammates, while living completely across the country and being away from home for the first time in his life. While Adams was off to an excellent year and was in the process of realizing a major boost in his college recruitment, Adams recently suffered a knee injury during a dunk on a fast break. The seriousness of the injury has not yet been determined, but it is likely that Adams could miss the remainder of this season.
Adams will be in great shape though medically, as IMG has some of the best physical therapists and trainers in the country for athletic injuries.
Currently, Adams is receiving strong interest from such college programs as Arizona State, Texas, USC, UNLV, San Diego State and Grand Canyon – each school hoping to land the talented prospect when he qualifies academically.
According to Adams' club coach, Kenny Mullins of the Arizona Magic Elite, Adams is now on pace to qualify academically this spring, and should have many suitors looking to land the talented post prospect.
Adams has developed a great deal as of late physically, and is also coming off a very strong spring and summer showing for himself as well, although he hurt his ankle during the summer and missed some key action late in July. Regardless of the severity of the injury, Adams will look to recover physically and return to action as soon as possible. The time away from the basketball court should definitely aid Adams in the classroom, as he looks to gain NCAA academic eligibility this spring.
