"I just had fun on my visit," Thomas said. "I liked it a lot. I like the coaching staff and I just like the whole situation and the whole environment."
"They've been there since day one and since early July," the Newark (N.J.) NIA Prep standout added. "They definitely made a big impact."
Thomas cited his relationship with Mick Cronin as one of the main reasons he went with Cincinnati.
"Me and him built a real good relationship," he said. "We have a good relationship and my coach does too."
