The West Virginia Mountaineers have offered the 6-foot-6 wing out of Portsmouth (Ohio) Clay High School and, if all goes well this week, will receive a verbal commitment from him soon.
"I'll probably end up there," Thoroughman said at the AAU Nationals. "[Coach Beilein] told me [before the Hoosier Shootout] that he was interested and liked the way I play."
Thoroughman's offer came after the Hoosier Shootout and the entire process is likely to end this coming week when he visits Morgantown unofficially. "My parents want me to take a look at the place," Thoroughman said. Tentatively the visit is set for Thursday of next week.
Thoroughman's stroke has been coming along and he's got a big body for a wing. He had 5 points and 8 rebounds in the Royals last second win of the Rising Stars Friday night.
"I play on a Division Four team in high school," Thoroughman said. "I do pretty much a little bit of everything."
From the sounds of it, he'll be doing that at West Virginia in the fall of 2006 if all goes well on his unofficial visit.
