Adams will be a junior in 2018 for Louisiana Tech, giving her two years left of action. Coming from the junior college ranks, she also should be set for immediate eligibility.
A 5’11” middle blocker and right side hitter from Longview, Texas, Adams logged 1.75 kills per set (.244) and 0.78 blocks per set as a freshman in 2016 with Panola College. This past year as a sophomore she upped her numbers with 2.38 kills per set (.254) and 0.78 blocks per set once again. In total, she recorded 475 kills and 180 blocks in her two years.
From a team perspective, she helped her squad finish ninth in the NJCAA Division I classification. During that run in the NJCAA Tournament, Adams was at the forefront of the success with All-Tournament honors.
Louisiana Tech is coming off of a 7-21 season in which they went 2-12 in Conference USA play. They had five middle blockers, with three who can also flex as right sides last season. All were young this past season, so Adams will join the group looking to lead the way.
