Thornton Makes Commitment

Dazzmond Thornton, a 6-6 power forward from Denver (Col.), has decided to play in the Big 12...

Dazzmond Thornton, 6-6 SR PF Denver (Col.) Denver East, was extremely impressive in Las Vegas last month and we spoke with multiple coaches who were intrigued with the big-bodied post.

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.
