Maker to 2016, will stay in high school

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The biggest recruiting news out of NBPA Top 100 Camp came from Thon Maker, as he announced he will do one more year of 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.
