|HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports: 2012 Prospects (Part Two)|
January 19, 2012
Jordan Adams (#73 Scout, #74 Rivals, #50 ESPN) had one of the most potent offensive games of the tournament, scoring an outstanding 23 points in just 23 minutes, and doing so on a very efficient 9-for-14 shooting.
Standing 6'5 with just decent length, a solid frame, and average athleticism, Adams has good size for a shooting guard, but clearly is more appealing due to his skills than his physical tools.
Adams' game revolves heavily around his spot-up jump shot, specifically from three-point range, where he shot a scorching 5-for-7 in his team's dominant 85-55 win. Adams has effortless range and excellent mechanics, being very dangerous both in the half court and transition. His release in high and quick and he does a good job getting open off the ball, as he clearly has a good feel for utilizing this potent weapon.
Beyond his excellent shooting ability, Adams' game doesn't stand out notably in any other ways. He does a decent job complementing his shooting by finishing on simple lay-ups in transition and straight-line drives, just enough to keep the defense honest. He doesn't show much in terms of shot creating ability, either on the perimeter or going to the basket, but seems well aware of the role he's best suited to play.
Adams also benefits from playing in an extremely well-run offense with very talented players on Oak Hill, something that will be interesting to compare playing next season at UCLA. How he adjusts to a more level playing field and bigger, more athletic competition will be key to his development, along with what tools he improves to add to his somewhat limited repertoire.
Looking forward, it's tough to say what Adams' ultimate long term potential is at this stage, as it is highly dependent on how his role playing ability translates to the college level.
