After two years away from the court, Nathan Adrian is set to start his pro career with Bordeaux (France). 

Adrian had a great showing with Best Virginia in the TBT tournament and teams oversees took notice. The Morgantown native was offered a contract with JSA-Bordeaux-Métropole-Basketball in France. JSA was a club that was formed back in 1938 and has provided a team that competes every year with solid players. Adrian is going to be playing PF/C for the team and should see quality minutes.

The team is excited to bring in the former Mountaineer and posted this on their website.

They also tweeted to celebrate their new signing.

Adrian is another former Mountaineer who will compete oversees and pass along the Mountaineer Mentality. He was a fan favorite while at WVU and is always the toughest player on the court no matter who is playing. Mountaineer fans should be proud to have him represent West Virginia University in France.
