ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Guard Rio Adams, who spent his freshman year on the bench at Kansas, is transferring to play at Ohio University.
The Seattle native played in 24 games for the Jayhawks during the 2012-13 campaign, averaging 1.1 points and 3.5 minutes per game behind a veteran backcourt that also included star guard Ben McLemore.
Adams will sit out the 2013-14 season and will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2014-15.
A former top-100 recruit, Adams averaged 21.0 points, 6.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game as a senior at Rainier Beach High.
He chose Kansas over Arizona, California, Gonzaga, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Texas, UCLA, Southern California, Washington and Washington State.
