With his parents and teammates at Madison (MS) Madison Central, guard Jeremy Adams signed his Letter-of-Intent to play for the Aggies.

Adams was widely considered one of the fasted rising seniors in the country after the early signing period in November and was also gaining strong interest from Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame and Kentucky under former head coach Billy Gillispie.

"It feels great. I'm just looking forward and my focus now is just to get ready for the upcoming season. I go to summer school June 1 and I'm going to spend time there working out and getting know the team and the campus a little bit, and hopefully becoming a better player," Adams said. "I'm very excited about playing in the Big 12 and playing on national television against some of the best competition in the nation. I'm very excited."
