Kansas and Bill Self had high hopes for Anrio Adams, one of the most highly sought after high school players in the Class of 2012.
But after one year those hopes have vanished and Adams has decided to transfer to Athens, Ohio, to play for the Ohio University Bobcats.
The Seattle native was unhappy with a lack of playing time during his first year in Lawrence. He played just 83 minutes in 24 games while being relegated as a backup to Ben McLemore -- projected to be an NBA lottery pick -- senior Elijah Johnson and Naadir Tharpe.
His transfer was no surprise, but where he landed did raise some eyebrows. There were reports he would end up in the Pac-12 or somewhere in the Northwest.
But Adams was sold on the family atmosphere at Ohio.
"I feel like going home and playing closer is better for me and my family," Adams said in announcing his choice to play for Jim Christian. "This was definitely a family decision and it was a decision I wanted to do that would be best for my situation."
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard will be eligible to play for the 2014-15 season.
Adams was a 4-star recruit coming out of high school and had offers from Arizona, Gonzaga, Texas and UCLA among others.
