Former Kansas guard Rio Adams is apparently on the move again.

Adams, who left the KU basketball team in the spring and eventually landed at Ohio University in June, has parted ways with Ohio, according to the Athens Messenger. Adams is likely headed to a junior college destination, according to Ohio coach Jim Christian.
“After meeting with Rio, we’ve agreed that it’s in his best interests to pursue his basketball career at the junior college level,” Christian told the Messenger. “We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
Adams played at three high schools in his native Seattle before signing with Kansas in 2012. An athletic 6-foot-3 combo guard, Adams averaged 1.1 points in 3.5 minutes per game as a freshman last season.
For a freshman guard who rarely saw the court, Adams did have an oddly memorable stay in Lawrence. Known for his funny sideline celebrations, Adams took to Twitter during the season to voice his displeasure about his lack of playing time. He then announced, after the season, that he would be leaving Kansas — before changing his mind a few days later. After further conversations with KU coach Bill Self, Adams eventually decided to look for a new school.
