While I personally think this was the easy decision to further improve his profile, I understand that in the world of college hoops the easy decision is often passed upon simply for the chance to turn a profit. I am glad that Jalen is coming back to the program and feel that the presence of Coach Hurley will only benefit him and his journey into professional basketball.
While UCONN looks to rebuild under a new coach and mentality, Jalen has the chance to be the face of the rebuild. A talented guard no doubt, he now has the chance to develop further as a leader, and inspire a new core of Huskies and future recruits.
UCONN, one of the most successful college programs of all time, and more specifically the past two decades is moving in the right direction. Jalen Adams returning for his senior season is another step towards regaining the respect that has been lost over the past few seasons, and making those who now doubt, believers again.
