Jalen Adaway, a 6-5 guard from Logansport, Ind., has committed to St. Bonaventure University after spending two years at Miami (Ohio). Adaway made the announcement during a gathering in his hometown.
He will sit out the upcoming season according to NCAA transfer rules and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Adaway averaged 7.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game as a sophomore in 24.9 minutes per game after averaging 8.5 points and 5.0 rebounds as a freshman.
Tray Woodall, the former Pitt player who recently joined the Bona coaching staff, was the lead recruiter on Adaway.
“It’s just a great basketball school,” Adaway told the Pharos Tribune in Indiana. “They live and die for basketball. They don’t have football there, so everybody comes out to support the games. They sell out each home game. ...
“They’re just excited that not only am I an unselfish player, but I’m an athlete and they’re excited to really work and get my skill to that elite level. They’ve been telling me I can be all-conference. I’m looking forward to getting to work with them."
