Storrs, CT, United States (4E Sports) - Jalen Adams, the nation's No. 33 senior, has picked national champion UConn as his college destination, selecting the Huskies over Louisville and Kansas.

Adams visited Connecticut's campus twice in recent weeks, most recently Sunday afternoon with his parents.

"It was because of the coaching staff and the style of play," Adams said. "Coach Ollie lets the guards play. It's a guards-based program."

Adams is from the same greater Boston area that produced Shabazz Napier, who just led the Huskies to their fourth national championship in the past 15 years and played his way into the first round of the NBA draft.

Adams is considered as the best playmaking guard to come out of the Boston area since Napier.

"Seeing what Coach Ollie did with a local guard from where I'm from, it definitely made a difference," Adams said, "and made me believe that if I put in the same amount of work that I could potentially end up with a similar opportunity."

Adams' AAU coach Vinny Pastore said Adams will fit UConn's system perfectly.

"It's just a perfect fit for him," Pastore said. "Their style of play, the tradition they have of developing guards to play free. I think Jalen has always wanted to go to UConn, and they recruited him the entire time."
