Arizona Preps Q&A: Adam Njie

by Chris Monter | Posted on Saturday, July 10th, 2021

NBA scout and draft expert for many years, Chris Monter (Monter Draft News) has joined the Arizona Preps' staff, and recently hit the road on behalf of Arizona Preps to cover some of Arizona's top prospects. In the process, Monter covered and featured the Arizona travel programs in participation - interviewing their top prospects and evaluating their play during the competition.

Adam Njie, a 6-foot-2 guard from Gilbert (AZ) Eduprize, is one of the top sophomores in the state of Arizona. He has shined as a member of Team Harden 15-and-under AAU program this spring and summer, and his strong play in the Adidas 3SSB 15-and-under championships in Council Bluffs, Iowa, earned him increased attention. Njie is originally from New York and has received plenty of interest from schools in the East, but his strong play this summer will likely cause West Coast schools to jump into the mix. Arizona Preps caught up with Njie recently to learn more about his recruitment and upcoming sophomore season. 

Arizona Preps: What have you learned from playing AAU that has really helped you improve your game - say from last year to today? 

Adam Njie: I learned that you have to have spacing on the floor. That is a big key in the game. You have to have spacing, execute your plays, get all your teammates involved and the main thing is, play defense.

Arizona Preps: Do you see a big difference in your game from last year to this season?

Adam Njie: Yes. My IQ got way higher. I have been working on every skill-set. Everything in my skills; shooting, ball-handling and finishing. One thing that I really improved is getting my teammates involved. 

Arizona Preps: Are you starting to hear from some schools? 

Adam Njie: Yes. I have an offer from FIU (Florida International) and the Manhattan Jaspers. I am starting to hear from St. John’s, Syracuse, Iona, Hofstra, Gardner-Webb, and more coming in.    

Arizona Preps: Does that make you want to work even a little harder to hear from even more schools? 

Adam Njie: Yes. It makes me want to work way harder. I work every day, trying to get way more offers. I’m only a freshman, so it is only up from here. 

Arizona Preps: What about your high school team? What are the expectations for you guys this up-coming season? 

Adam Njie: I’m trying to a big part of the team this year. I am trying to help my team win. Do everything that they need me to do. Probably not going to be much of a scorer this year, but I am going to get my team involved, play my part and do everything that they need me to do.
