Marlon Adams, a 6-foot-6, 210-pound guard from Middletown, N.Y. and Believe Prep (S.C.), has committed to Eastern Kentucky and coach Dan McHale for the Class of 2016.
Adams also held offers from Samford and Southern Illinois.
"I decided to pick EKU because it felt like home as soon as I stepped foot on campus [May 3]," Adams told SNY.tv. I love what Coach McHale is doing with the program and I love the direction that it is moving in. I feel like myself along with the other pieces added can really make noise on the court and bring the winning culture back to EKU. Also EKU has been on me since last summer so I figured I'd repay the loyalty and commit there.
