Matt Thomas, 6-2 JR SG Riverside (Calif.) M.L. King, is a talented scorer with a good frame and above-average athleticism.

Thomas told us last night that he's been receiving mail from San Francisco, Cal, USC, San Diego St. and Wyoming, among others.

When we asked if he had a geographical preference, Thomas replied, "yeah, I want to stay in the west, stay close to home." Thomas also said that he's not looking at early playing time as a major factor in his decision.

Thomas listed USC and Arizona as his childhood favorites, but said that he's wide-open at this point.

Thomas anticipates making a decision sometime after next summer, as he plans on taking several trips.

Thomas said he has a 3.0 GPA and has yet to take the SAT.
