Freshman small forward Marcus Adams Jr. will no longer be attending Gonzaga, he told On3. Adams will remain in the transfer portal and will not have to re-enter because he did not officially enroll at the school.

The former four-star recruit initially signed with and enrolled at Kansas. He was participating in workouts with the Jayhawks and was attending summer classes. The 6-foot-8 California native spent roughly a month in Lawrence before deciding to enter the transfer portal in mid-July. However, the transfer portal window closed in May. The 60-day window allows first-time transfers to be immediately eligible. Since Adams entered the portal after the deadline had passed, he might need a waiver from the NCAA in order to be eligible this season.

Less than a week after entering the portal, Adams publicized his commitment to Gonzaga. On July 31st, the school announced Adams had officially signed with the Zags.

Four weeks later, the highly-touted recruit is now once again looking for a new place to call home and has officially reopened his recruitment.

According to the On3 Industry Rankings, Marcus Adams Jr. is the No. 66 overall prospect in the 2023 cycle. He’s also the No. 14 small forward prospect and the No. 11 player in the state of California. The On3 Industry Ranking is a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.
