High school hoops star leaves CNY

Adams-Woods to attend prep school

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Mika Adams-Woods had been leaning toward attending prep school for quite awhile.  When he woke up Tuesday morning though, the Bishop Ludden star decided to make it official.

Adams-Woods took to Twitter to announce his plans to attend New Hampton Prep-- that's the same school that Tyler Lydon went to before coming to Syracuse. 

Jim Boeheim's son, Jimmy, went there as well for one year after leaving Jamesville-DeWitt. 

Those local connections played a role in Mika's decision. 

Adams-Woods told NewsChannel 9 that he spoke with Lydon after a game against J-D during his sophomore season at Bishop Ludden.

He also got Jimmy Boeheim's thoughts on the school during a visit this year to New Hampton Prep.

Mika has re-classified to 2019, meaning he has two more years now before college. 

Adams-Woods expects the extra time will allow him to mature both on and off the court.

Several mid-major Division-I programs have already made scholarship offers to the 6'3" point guard including the likes of George Washington, East Carolina, St. Bonaventure, and UMass.

He believes that once he gets stronger physically, that the interest from major programs will follow.

Mika has developed a strong relationship with Mike Hopkins and says that Washington would be high on his list should the Huskies decide to extend a scholarship offer in the future.

Adams-Woods was a three-year starter at Bishop Ludden.  He scored more than 1,000 points for the Gaelic Knights and led them to the 2016 Section III Class AA Championship.
