Maker decides to stay in school

Indiana lost out on one of its most coveted recruits Thursday night but the Hoosiers didn't lose Thon Maker to a rival school. The 7-foot center has opted to remain in the class of 2016 rather than come out early in the class of 2015.

Thon Maker has decided to stay put in the class of 2016.

The 7-foot center originally from South Sudan told reporters at the NBPA Top 100 Camp that he will stay at Orangeville Prep (Canada) for one more season.

"I'm definitely going to stay and play it out," Maker told reporters at the NBPA Top 100 Camp.

Maker had talked about coming out in the class of 2015 and possibly graduating prep school at the semester. But Thursday night at the camp at the University of Virginia, Maker said he would stay at Orangeville and play with his younger brother, Matur.

Indiana was one of the leaders for the 7-foot center’s services. Top Stories
