According to reports from the McDonald's All-America game, Thomas has limited his choices to Duke and Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights, by promoting top recruiter Fred Hill to the head coaching job, remain in the mix.
Earl Clark, who also played in the McDonald's game in San Diego, signed with Louisville. The 6-foot-9, 220 pound swingman and Thomas's second and final all-star game (the NCAA restricts participation to two games to stay eligible) is the Roundball Classic on Sunday, April 9, 2006 at 3:00 p.m. in Chicago's United Center.
Haddonfield, New Jersey's Brian Zoubek joins Clark on Parade's fourth team. The 7-foot-1, 270 pound Duke signee led Haddonfield (31-2) to three straight Group II titles and this year's State Tournament of Champions semifinals. He averaged 25 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks and closed with a 111-10 career record in four years.
Zoubek was named to the Associated Press All-State first team this week. Clark was named to the second team.
