Thomas commits to Texas A&M
Four-star prospect Elijah Thomas announced for Texas A&M at a press conference at Lancaster (Tex.) High on Tuesday. Thomas, a 6-foot-9, 255-pound center, committed to Texas A&M over scholarship offers from Illinois, LSU, Oklahoma State and SMU. The decision comes just a week after close friend Admon Gilder announced for Texas A&M. Gilder and Thomas took their official visits to Texas A&M together the weekend of October 11th. Thomas brings value to the game with his ability to score on the block. He’s aggressive with his post moves, has good scoring touch around the basket and is able to carve out space with ease. He’s also effective as an area rebounder. Thomas is regarded as the No. 8 center and the No. 30 overall recruit in the 2015 recruiting class. Billy Kennedy and his staff have done a terrific job compiling their class. With the addition of Thomas, the Aggies now have three prospects ranked among the top 32 recruits in the country and are ranked No. 3 overall in the 2015 class rankings. Thomas joins Tyler Davis (No. 25), D.J. Hogg (No. 32) and four-star guard Admon Gilder to make up Texas A&M’s current class.
