Thomas cuts list to two

Matt Thomas narrowed his list of schools to just a pair. Who made the cut? When will he decide? The top 100 guard broke it down with

Matt Thomas has his list of schools down to a pair.

Thomas, who ranks as a top 100 shooting guard in the 2013 class, entertained interest from a number of high major programs, but recently cut his list to Iowa State and Virginia.

"It's pretty much Iowa State and Virginia," Thomas told "I just think those are two of the best fits for me. Both have great coaches. I've really gotten to know them and build relationships with them."

"My heart has kind of lead me to this," the Onalaska (Wisc.) High standout added. "Deep down that's what I felt was right."

Although he has his list to two schools, Thomas, a 6-foot-4 guard, isn't sure when he will come up with his final choice.

"I'm not sure when I'll decide," he said. "I thought about maybe playing in July and seeing what happens then, but I also thought about wrapping it up in the next couple of weeks, but I'm not sure."

"It could be in the next week, a couple of weeks or in a month," Thomas added. "I really don't know."

Thomas has taken visits to both of his finalists and isn't planning to take any more trips.

"I don't think so," he said when asked about taking more visits. "Nothing is planned. I've been out to Virginia and I've been to Iowa State. I think it's more of just me sitting down with my family and talking about it and figuring out the best fit."

In July, Thomas will continue to run with the Wisconsin Playmakers. Thomas said they'll participate in both NY2LA events and will make the trip to Las Vegas in late July.
