Pace Gets a Good One in Adams

Pace University came into New England and landed a steal this week with a verbal commitment from Hamden Hall forward Christian Adams

Adams has had a decorated high school career, dating back to his years at both Hillhouse and Hamden Hall, and been recruiting by multiple divisoin I and II schools during that time.

He won pair of state championships at Hillhouse while averaging 12 points and 14 rebounds per game in the 2016-17 and also earning MVP honors of SEC tournament. 

He upped those averaged to 15 points and 8 rebounds per game last year for Hamden Hall while leading them to both the regular season and tournament championship of the Fairchester League. 

"Pace University got a real steal in Christian Adams," said Hamden Hall head coach and longtime college coach Sean Doherty. "He's a great student, clutch player, and awesome kid."

Adams is an athletic combo-forward with a powerful body who should be capable of playing multiple positions and making an immediate impact in the Northeast 10 Conference. He joins teammate Byron Breland to become the second Hamden Hall product to accept a full scholarhsip offer so far this year. 

Adams also becomes the third New England native to commit to Pace in the last two years after the Setters landed Newton North's Chris Matthews and Lawrence Academy's Martin Mann in their 2018 recruiting class.
