One of the fastest rising 2024 prospects in the nation has announced his college commitment tonight on Tuesday. Marcus Adams Jr., the 6’8” small forward of Narbonne High School in California has picked Kansas and Bill Self over a long list of other offers. Over the past month Adams recruitment has continued to rapidly develop with prominent programs nationwide.  

In just a year, Adams has gone from a relatively unknown prospect for division one programs into a top forty ranked 2024 player nationally. Adams only received his first division one offer coming from Pepperdine last April and his first high major offer last August via Washington State. Throughout the past few months however, Adams became one of the most sought after 2024 players nationwide.  

After announcing a top five of Mississippi State, Oregon, Texas, Syracuse, and UCLA a month ago, the offers continued to pour in for the wing. Kansas came in late just offering him last month a few days following the announcement of his top five. Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas State, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Washington, and Xavier had all offered him in February. 

After the continuous pouring in of offers from high major offers, Adams announced a final three of Kansas, Syracuse, and UCLA just last week. The junior had just taken his official visit to UCLA this past weekend, but Kansas was still able to come out on top. He had taken his official visit to Lawrence the weekend before. 

For the next level, Adams has an ideal blend of size, versatility, and skill level. Adams marks the first commitment in the Jayhawks 2024 recruiting class but there is the possibility he could move his plans up a year and head to Lawrence for next season.
