2020 Paxon forward Isaiah Adams is a player on the rise.
At 6’5″, 180 lbs., Adams has already drawn interest from UNF, FSU, UF, Wake Forest, UCF, Butler, Rice, Louisville and Murray State.
He broke down his freshman campaign at Paxon.
“Last season for Paxon it was good we did okay as a team and we won a fair amount of games but as for me I had a good year contributing to the team with more than scoring I have an all-around game,” Adams told Prep Hoops Florida. “What I learned the most last year and going into this year is that there’s more to basketball than just playing, you also have to carry yourself off the court and that grades are very important.”
Adams said his role as a sophomore will be to be a better vocal leader on and off the court.
“I’m one of the oldest guys on the team now with us only having one senior this year and getting to regionals and state,” he said.
His focus right now is to get stronger and lead his team to the state tournament.
This summer, Adams played for Team Jacksonville and Team CP25.
In terms of his strengths, Adams pointed to his ability to get everyone on his team shoots, his unselfishness, scoring and blocking. He’s aiming to improve getting his shot off quicker, his overall shooting form and continuing to add muscle.
Adams is quickly flying up the ranks. His length and assertiveness are what stands out in his game right now. He’s working on adding strength which will allow him to be more dangerous inside. Look for Adams to continue his development as a sophomore.
