Anrio Adams gives a verbal commitment to Kansas

Rainier Beach senior basketball player Anrio Adams has given a verbal commitment to Kansas.

The news was first reported by LeftCoastRecruiting.com and I confirmed it through Vikings coach Mike Bethea Saturday afternoon.

“I think it is,” Bethea said when asked if Kansas was a good fit for the 6-foot-3 guard. “Obviously, wherever he goes, if Rio does what he’s supposed to do, any place would be a good fit. He has some history there, because Rodrick (Stewart) is his godbrother. He’s been talking with Rodrick (who was on the Jayhawks’ 2008 national championship team) quite a bit.”

It has been a long year for Adams, who began his junior season at Franklin, before transferring to Garfield. He spent time this summer at St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth, N.J. before returning to Seattle for his senior year at Rainier Beach.

“To be honest, just his overall skill level,” said Bethea. “Wow. It’s on par with anybody to come through here. You’re talking about Jamal (Crawford), Terrence (Williams), Nate (Robinson), the twins (Lodrick and Rodrick Stewart). His skill level is on par with those guys.”

High-school basketball practices started this week and Bethea praised what he’s seen from Adams so far.

“He’s been doing all the right things for me,” Bethea said.
