2012: Anrio Adams out to prove a point

6-foot-3 guard Anrio Adams high school career has been a roller coaster.  Adams final stop is at Rainer Beach High School located in Seattle, Washington.  The combo guard’s high school career started at Franklin High school.  As a young freshman Adams put his name on the map.

Adams had a solid sophomore year as well at Franklin.  Everything was going fine for the young man until his junior year.  There were rumblings around the Seattle area that Adams got thrown off the team when Franklin High School attended a tournament in California.  No one really knows what happened during that trip.  Franklin head coach Jason Kerr and Adams parted ways.

The plan after Adams got dismissed from Franklin was to attend South Kent Prep in Connecticut.  Problems with grade transcripts didn’t get Adams out to Connecticut.  With the young man out of school for a couple weeks, Adams ended up at Garfield High School.  Basketball wasn’t an option due to the Washington Interscholastic Activates Association transfer rules.

Summer came around and Adams played with his AAU team, Seattle Rotary.  That only lasted a quarter of the summer.  What would be the next move for the talented Seattle guard?  Adams took a trip out east.  Word around the Seattle area was that St. Patrick’s High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey was the next stop for Adams.

St. Patrick’s had an AAU team that consisted of their players and Adams played.  He played real well.  Things were looking good for Adams.  Once time settled, homesickness kicked in.  What was supposed to be a weekend trip back to Washington, ended up being a move back to Washington.

There wasn’t any time wasted on what school he would attend his senior year.  Adams decided to attend Rainier Beach High School.  Adams has been keeping his grades up in school and has been learning the system of Rainier Beach’s offense during fall ball.

Talks of Adams reclassifying to the class of 2013 have been answered.

“Why does everyone ask me that?  I am in the class of 2012. I handled my business”

Adams took the summer seriously and focused on different aspects of the game of basketball.

“Although I didn’t play in the camps this summer, I was home studying the game.  I trained and watched game footage of Michael Jordan all summer.  This is my life! This is what I want to do!”

Even with a down summer, college coaches are still in contact.

“Baylor, Georgetown, LSU, Arizona, and Louisville have all contacted me.”

It sounds like Adams is out to prove a point to his critics.  Will he silent all of them?  Only time will tell.  Stay tuned on the progress of Adams senior year, right here at Leftcoastrecruiting.com
