After emerging as a key player last season while leading Cedar Rapids Jefferson in scoring, rebounding, and assists, Adam Van Oort heads into his senior season with some serious interest from area Division III and NAIA programs.  

“A few schools have shown a lot of interest; Coe, Buena Vista, Grand View, St. Mary (KS), and Mount Mercy,” said Van Oort. “The coaches have been texting me and calling a lot. I just took a visit to Coe, and I’m planning on taking a visit to Buena Vista later this month.”

The 6-foot-5 wing spent his summer playing with Iowa Dynasty, and his guard skills were something he worked hard to improve.

“My coach had me playing point guard and I thought I played that position really well, even though I’m 6’5 I can handle the ball pretty well, and I’m a good passer. I thought I really improved my ball-handling and my shooting, especially my 3-point shooting, I’m getting a lot more consistent than I was last year,” said the versatile senior.

“I really like to score in transition, so whenever we can run, I like that. And then 3-point shooting is one of my strengths.
