Kansas Basketball: Adams to Transfer?


Jayhawks freshman guard Anrio Adams announced his intention to transfer closer to home last week on Tuesday, then the guard backtracked this statement, announcing his desire to stay with the team over twitter on Thursday.

The guard appeared in 24 games during the season, with his best outing coming in the Big 12 tournament vs Texas Tech, where he scored 11 points.

Adams averaged 3.5 points per game last season.

It is not known where the guard from Seattle will transfer too if he does transfer, but Kansas head coach Bill Self, granted the release. The loss of Adams costs the team a talented player, especially if Ben McLemore opts for the NBA draft, where he is seen as a top-three pick. Incoming freshman Wayne Selden, Brannen Greene, Joel Embiid, Connor Frankamp, and Frank Mason are all on target to join the fray next year.

Guards on the roster expected to return next season include: Naadir Tharpe, Andrew White III, Evan Manning, Tyler Self, Niko Roberts,and Christian Garrett.
