Spring Signing Week '14: Henry Adams to Abilene Christian
Share:   

Four-star recruit Henry Adams of the San Antonio area has been a winner at each of the Texas high schools he attended.

Henry Adams has committed to Abilene Christian
During his freshman year at New Braunfels High School, in a county just north of San Antonio, the Unicorns captured the Texas Class 4A state team championship. After training for a year at the Advantage Doyle Academy in Austin, Henry was back at New Braunfels. Another state team championship was on the books during his junior year. He moved to a suburb of San Antonio, and joined the Alamo Heights tennis team. The Mules placed third at the state Class 4A team tournament last fall. Henry and his partner, John King, placed second in the state individual doubles championship in the spring season.

With his impressive résumé, Henry signed the National Letter of Intent with Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas. ACU was a powerhouse in the NCAA Division II, and the school is now a member of Division I.

"I decided ACU would be the best fit for me because of the size, the tennis team, and my religious values," Henry said. " Throughout my college career I want to keep getting better, hopefully bringing our team to be the best in our conference - and maybe even be a threat to the bigger schools."

Henry took a serious look at Texas A&M University, where his brother, Harrison, is a sophomore on the Aggies team. He also strongly considered Trinity University in San Antonio.

The Abilene Christian Wildcats are led by Hutton Jones, who is in his 18th season at the helm. Jones has guided ACU's men's and women's programs to 23 conference championships (13 for the women, ten for the men), 28 NCAA regional championships (17 for the women, 11 for the men) and 28 combined appearances in the NCAA Division II national tournament, including 17 straight for the women's program from 1997-2012.

Jones said that although the team is indeed in a transition period, the Wildcats have always maintained a "D-I attitude." Each year, according to Hutton, ACU had played between ten and twelve matches against Division I opponents.
