Thornton is now off the board, however, as he has committed to Texas Tech. We spoke with Thornton's father David this evening and he told us that his son had decided to play for Bobby Knight.
"Our first thing is that he (Coach Knight) graduates players," said Mr. Thornton. "It's a solid program and he'll bring out the best in Dazzmond."
Mr. Thornton said that SMU was the runner-up in the recruitment.
