Maker to 2016, will stay in high school
In the end, Thon Maker, a five-star prospect, will stay in the 2016 recruiting class. Maker, who was originally was a member of the 2016 class, announced in February that he was on track to graduate and would go to college in 2015. On Thursday, Maker informed a group of reporters at the NBPA Top 100 Camp of his new intentions. Maker's guardian -- Ed Smith -- confirmed the news with Scout. "He tried and he's going to stay in 2016," Smith said. "It was a lot of work trying to get it done." Arizona State and Indiana are thought to be the leaders in the Maker recruitment. He's already taken a visit to Indiana, while he has a strong connection to an Arizona State assistant coach. On the court, Maker has impressed at NBPA Top 100 Camp. The 7-footer has played with tremendous energy. He's rebounding his area, racing rim to rim and contesting shots in the paint.
