Currently Louisiana’s 47th-ranked 2018, 5-foot-11 guard Calvin Adams is heading into the teeth of his senior season still with no offers, but could see some late ones come in over the next few months.
There’s a variety of local programs showing some amount of interest in the Zachary guard.
“Right now, I know a lot of teams like North Texas, Southeastern, Xavier (LA), and some other schools had been showing interest. And now Millsaps is in the fray, and they’ve been trying to recruit me heavily,” said Adams.
“Southern has been coming to a couple of my games, but I haven’t heard much from them, and also a little bit of Loyola.”
He added: “It’s a good start for me, I just want to play at the highest level school I can. I’m hoping to pick up some offers here soon.”
Now, well into his senior season with the Broncos, Adams has undertaken an impressive leadership role with the team.
“The biggest thing I’ve been working on is giving my teammates knowledge of the game, and keeping the flow of the game going. And I‘m trying to hone their skills and get them as good as they can be,” said Adams.
“And personally, I’ve been working on my ball-handling, working on my off-hand. And I’ve been working a lot on my scoring, because that’s one of the biggest roles I have on my team.”
Though Adams’ Broncos have gotten off to a slow start this season, he’s optimistic they can turn the corner here soon.
“Our schedule has been really, really tough. We started 4-5 and a lot of that was because of me, I started slow. I need to score more this year, and be more of a vocal leader,” said Adams.
“We just got out to a slow start and now we’re trying to pick it up. And I think we’re going to finish strong.”
