Gatorbait.net (http://florida.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1080491) (Rivals) Run N Slam in Fort Wayne:
A dangerous trio

Far and away the team that traveled the furthest to get to the Run 'N Slam is Seattle Rotary. The boys from the Pacific Northwest came with a purpose, and at the 17-and under level they brought a trio of good looking wings.

Everyone knows about Anthony Wroten. The national top 10 player is still working his way back from an injury suffered during football season, but he is looking good. At this point Wroten lacks a little bit of the explosion he had before the injury, but by no means is he hurting in that department. What does look better is his jumper. Always an athletic specimen who is a gifted passer, Wroten is now adding a far more consistent and better looking jump shot to the table. If he can get that down, it will be near impossible to guard him. On Saturday when he was motivated, Wroten was simply too much to contain, and he was the engine driving the Rotary ship.

Joining Wroten as always was Gary Bell. Bell absolutely caught fire from three, and when the Gonzaga commitment gets hot, he is a handful to deal with. A very good athlete with strength, Bell complements his knock down shooting with an ability to get to the rim and finish. Though he played limited minutes, Bell was a scoring machine and was nearly perfect from the field.

The third member of the trio is 2012 guard Anrio Adams. In a class searching for elite level scorers from the perimeter, Adams might be one to really emerge. He is an absolute jet with the ball, and has a stroke that extends out to 25 feet. All day long Adams was just money from three. Adams was able to hit contest shots off the bounce as if they were catch and shoot in rhythm jumpers, and with his athleticism that isn't easy to deal with. He does need to improve his decision making with the ball, but the natural ability really came through in his play.

For Anrio Adams he says the whole Pac-10 is interest except for Oregon. Arizona, UCLA, and Washington State drew special mention. Also he says Texas is really coming after him hard.

This is going to be a great and fun summer to follow recruiting. It makes it more exciting seeing how Bell Jr. is doing now that we have a verbal. Look forward to seeing how Wiltjer, Dranginis, Pangos, and all the 2012 recruits perform. Should be fun.

Thanks ZN for the info.

Wait until Few, Stockton senior, and the pick up games have instructional influence.


Dranginis and Bell. What a combo!

I dig Anrio Adams but it sounds like his recruitment could get crazy like Tebbutt's. The staff will give them both a go, though. Gotta try or you'll never have a chance.

The prospects table lists Anrio Adams as a point guard, which is what Scout describes him as, but Rivals and ESPN show him as a shooting guard.

I don't know if I posted this recent youtube video of Adams (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5lTzwabmQs&playnext_from=TL&videos=EgmrML29Z0Q) from HoopScoutLive.com before. Adams is #1.

Big kid Anrio is. At 6 ft 3 in (180 lbs)...and likely to grow a bit more , he's got a lot of quickness and speed. He's a bigtime kid. I'm sure there'll be a huge scarmble for him..

I watched the 3 games Bell has on Comcast "On Demand". He looks like a thinner versions of Pargo with way better skills. Kid's got quickness, seriously good defensive skills ( which he uses) and he's got a variety of shots...close in, medium distance and from LD, he's really a lights out shooter.

Handles the ball like he was born with it in his hands. We're gonna like this kid. As a Junior he looks ready to be a 3 time Wa St All Star...and looks like he could contribute in the college ranks right now. He's really impressive. I hope he signs with us. Given what's happening with T Jone's recruitment, it looks like a verbal doesn't mean much to hungry coaches.

At this point in his under 17 career, he's the best prospect I've seen in years for the Zags. He's exactly what we've needed to push this program to the next level. Hard to believe this kid's only a Jr. Gentlemen and ladies, ahem...we've found our guy!

Interesting that they say Adams is shooting it well. The 2 times I've seen him, the 3 pt shot has looked like his only weakness. If he has that down, he can pretty much pick his school.

Surprised the writer says decision making is a weakness; when I've seen him his feel for the game has looked superb, a big guard with excellent pg instincts from what I've seen.

Watched Adams play 3 or 4 times at the state tournament this year. No denying his talent, slashes extremely well and can shoot a little from the outside (would rather drive than shoot). Dispute with teammates and Coach Kerr got him benched the last quarter and a half of the 5th/8th place game. That stuff can be worked out though. Coaches from WSU and UW were watching him, I expect he'll have quite the following of college coaches during his junior year.
