Coach Tim Miles on Adrame

“I really enjoyed getting to know Adrame. His personality will make him a great teammate.  He has a voice and leadership qualities that every team needs.  On the basketball floor, his length, quickness, and athleticism are off the charts. Adrame’s upside is extremely exciting.”
