Ex-Rocket Adams transferring to USF?



Former Lakewood High three-way standout Rodney Adams has indicated via Twitter what many had been expecting: He's transferring from Toledo to USF.

Adams didn't immediately respond to a text message Saturday. Last month, Toledo spokesman Paul Helgren told the Tampa Bay Times that Adams -- a Rockets freshman -- was pondering some options but had made no formal decision on his future.

Should the transfer be finalized, Adams could be eligible right away via an NCAA hardship waiver, which now allows student-athletes to play immediately if they transfer following the death of an immediate family member. 

Adams' mother, Michelle Scott, died in November from injuries sustained in a car accident.

Deemed a three-star recruit by out of high school, Adams (6-foot-1, 176 pounds) had only two catches for the Rockets this past season. A two-time second-team all-state pick at Lakewood, he had 25 receptions for 841 yards as a junior, and followed with more than 1,200 all-purpose yards as a senior.

He'd provide another athletic target both on the flank and in the slot for USF, which sorely lacked them in 2013.
