While the majority of the top prospects in Arizona's 2022 Class have now decided on their college homes, the best available prospect currently still available in the state is 6-foot-5 unsigned senior wing Quincy Adams. While it is a major surprise that he is still available at this juncture, Adams is still mulling over his recruiting options for school next fall.
Adams has received his share of college recruitment this spring, but he has yet to land the opportunity yet that he is looking for. Adams has received several Division-II offers for himself, and is considering them, but is still waiting for a Division-I offer to present itself. As a result of the current size of the NCAA Transfer Portal, there have been limited opportunities for Division-I scholarships for high school prospects this spring and now summer. Adams has been a big victim of this lack of college opportunities, as he has flown well below the recruiting radar since coming to the state for his senior season, but this young man is very worthy of much higher recruitment.
A very athletic wing prospect, Adams is a skilled and athletic performer that thrives in the open floor and when slashing to the basket. This season, he had to develop his ability to play in the half-court set, while running Head Coach Doug Harris' offense all season and leading his team in numerous tight battles. He has a left-handed shooting stroke with range and exceptional athleticism as well, that allows him to finish above the rim in traffic or in the open floor. He has good overall versatility as a player and can play and defend several positions. He is a good ball handler. Adams is a very underrated and is an excellent sleeper prospect for a college program.
Adams is coming off a strong performance during his senior season, where he helped lead his Hamilton Huskies to a runner-up finish for the 6A State Championship - falling to Perry High School (48-38) in the state championship game. In the process, Adams was the catalyst for Hamilton and their top individual performer throughout the season. A native of Texas, Adams moved to the state as a senior and was immediately inserted into the list of top performers for the 2022 Class, after numerous big early-season performances for himself.
Currently, Adams continues to work out with individiual trainers, and played this spring with The Firestorm club program, where he flourished as well.
Adams is currently the best available prospect in the state, so I do not expect him to be around much longer. Whichever college program lands this young man will be very pleased, as he is an excellent young man with a very nice family. I will continue to follow this story and bring you any updates as they continue to develop.
Here is a nice video of Adams and his talent, as well as the hard work that he is putting in daily to prepare himself for the next level of athletics.
