KU freshman Rio Adams fully qualified for scholarship

Self says all Jayhawk frosh have made the grade academically

August 4, 2012


Kansas University freshman Rio Adams, a 6-foot-3 guard from Seattle’s Rainier Beach High, has qualified academically for a scholarship, coach Bill Self said Saturday.

Self said he received word from the NCAA Clearinghouse regarding Adams on Wednesday or Thursday.

In July it was reported that freshman guard Milt Doyle, 6-4 from Chicago Marshall High, had qualified. Both had some concerns about their academic eligibility heading into the final days of the 2011-12 high school academic year.

Self said all of KU’s incoming players are eligible and will make the trip to Switzerland on Sunday for KU's upcoming four-game tour of Switzerland and Paris.
