Brendan Adams has committed to George Washington.

Adams will play in the A-10 Conference, where he initially committed to play under Dan Hurley at URI coming out of high school.

After finishing his degree in three years, guard Brendan Adams has entered the transfer portal as a grad transfer, he announced on Twitter.

The junior has two years of eligibility remaining for wherever he goes thanks to the NCAA’s decision to grant all winter athletes a free year this season. He will graduate in May with a degree in economics.

Adams was head coach Dan Hurley’s first recruit at UConn after originally committing to play for him at URI.

This season he averaged 4.5 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in inconsistent minutes over 16 games this season. The Baltimore native filled in the starting lineup for sophomore James Bouknight while he was out recovering from elbow surgery but after Bouknight came back, his minutes cratered and he played just three games the rest of the season.

Adams saw more consistent playing time in his sophomore season when he averaged 7.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 31 games. He had a career-high 20 points in a UConn win over Buffalo in Nov. 2019.

In 78 career games at UConn, and eight starts, Adams shot 35.2% from the field and 26.9% from 3-point range.
