- Melrose, Mass. Native
- Will play for Wilbraham & Monson next season
- Boston Amateur Basketball Club (BABC) AAU
We kind of broke our own rules on this one, but it’s ok because Jalen Adams is worth taking a look at. The 6-foot-1 guard from Melrose HS (Mass.) will be transferring to Wilbraham & Monson Academy next year, where he will team up with fellow BABC teammates Jaylen Brantley, Kamali Bey and Curtis Cobb.
Adams is an explosive guard with the skill set to be very special. He finishes around the rim and can hit the shot from the outside. He is also a leader on the floor, a skill that will only improve as he grows as a player.
