CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's basketball team adds Jonathan Adams to its basketball staff as graduate manager head coach John Shulman announced Tuesday. Adams, a native of Ringgold, Ga., joins the Mocs after playing professionally for the Bochum Astrostars in Bochum, Germany.

"Jonathan is a great addition to our team," said Shulman. "He was a great student-athlete at Old Dominion and is a perfect example for our players of what we want on and off the court. He has the background, work ethic and personality to be a star in this profession."

Adams graduated in May, 2009, from Old Dominion with a degree in psychology. He was the 2007 CAA Scholar Athlete of the Year for basketball and earned multiple all-academic selection playing four years (2006-09) for Monarchs head coach Blaine Taylor. He ended his career as the school's all-time leader in games played (135) helping lead the team to the 2009 Championship as well as NCAA and NIT berths.

Among his collegiate highlights, Adams hit three game-winning shots as a senior to beat Charlotte, Belmont and William & Mary. He scored his career high of 16 points at UNC Wilmington while grabbing his career best 10 rebounds against Drexel. Adams posted 10 points starting in ODU's upset at eighth-ranked Georgetown during the Hoyas' Final Four season (2006-07). He was also a finalist for the Lowe's Senior Award.

The two-time runner-up for Tennessee Mr. Basketball honors was a dominant player at Baylor. He averaged 21.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per contest as a senior which followed an impressive junior campaign of 19.7 points and 12.3 boards per game. He twice earned first team TSSAA All-State mention as well as numerous all-city and all-area nods.

Adams was the Chattanooga Player of the Year as a senior. He was selected as the Most Outstanding Player at the Benedictine High School Capital City Classic in Richmond, Va. He was also an honor roll student.

He comes from a strong athletic background. His mother, Priscilla Morgan, is North Carolina State's 10th all-time leading rebounder, while father, Charles Morgan, was a Howard High School standout and Tennessee Vols defensive lineman along with his godfather, NFL Hall of Famer Reggie White.
