Rice continues to add talent under head coach Mike Rhoades as three-star point guard Ako Adams committed in the Class of 2016. With three three-star prospects in 2015 and two talented commitments in 2016, the Owls are getting a fair amount of talent into the program and could be in very good shape if things go properly in a few years.
The 6-foot-2 Adams hails from Arlington, Virginia and attends Bishop O’Connell High School. Joining Adams in the Class of 2016 is four-star shooting guard Josh Hall. The 2015 class for Rice also has pledges from three-star prospects in guard Marcus Evans and shooting guard Connor Cashaw.
So the program has a lot of backcourt depth coming in the next two classes and it can help Rhoades use a number of lineups and backcourt combinations.
