2025 five-star Indiana basketball guard target Darius Adams has officially set a unofficial visit. This will be the first unofficial Indiana visit for Adams.

The visit is set for September 2nd, sources confirm to On3’s Joe Tipton was the first to report the news.

Indiana extended an offer to Adams just this past week.

Adams has been on the Indiana basketball radar for most of the summer, with the coaching staff watching the talented guard numerous times during live evaluation periods.

The 6-foot-4 combo guard is ranked No. 22 overall in the 247Sports Composite Rankings and is the No. 5 player at his position. He currently holds offers from Indiana, Florida State, Virginia, Syracuse, Rutgers, Seton Hall, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and others.

Adams is a long, quick and shifty guard who is tremendous at creating for himself. He is a very good shooter with extended range and showed the ability to make both off of the dribble and or catch and shoot opportunities.

As a sophomore at Manasquan (NJ) last season, Adams averaged 20.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

Adams played for PSA Cardinals on the Nike EYBL circuit over the summer and transferred to national powerhouse prep program La Lumiere (Ind.) this offseason.

Adams averaged 17.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game during Peach Jam in July. He was 11-of-29 from three in five games.

“I would say I excel at creating for other people, and scoring the ball,” Adams told 247Sports national analyst Dushawn London this summer. “Right now I’m working on my ball handling every day and I’ve been playing a lot of pick up. I feel like it helps me get other people involved and improve my game.”

Adams will take his visit the same time as his fellow La Lumiere teammate, key 2025 five-star Indiana target Jalen Haralson as well as four-star center Malachi Moreno.
