Former Kansas G Anrio Adams leaves Ohio two months after transferring

Kansas transfer Anrio Adams will not play for Ohio University this year, according to the Athens Messenger.

The Messenger reported Adams wasn't at the Ohio team meeting Sunday and failed to enroll in classes for the fall semester. He was with the team for all of two months before parting ways; Adams, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard, announced his transfer to Ohio in mid-June after opting to leave KU in early April.

"After meeting with Rio, we've agreed that it's in his best interests to pursue his basketball career at the junior college level," (Ohio coach Jim) Christian said. "We wish him the best in his future endeavors."
Adams has had trouble staying in one place very long. As a junior in high school, he was kicked off the Franklin (Wash.) High School team despite being the team's returning leading scorer. He attempted to transfer to schools in Connecticut and New Jersey, but instead ended up at Garfield High School (near Seattle) to finish his junior season, then wrapped his prep career at Rainier Beach in Seattle.

Playing behind lottery pick Ben McLemore last season, Adams scored 27 points total for the Jayhawks, averaging less than four minutes per game. He was set to redshirt this season for the Bobcats.
