The six-foot-eight forward from New Jersey wasn't able to sign on Wednesday but should be ready to send in his paperwork on Thursday.
"I just got the letter today," Thomas told Phog.Net. "We are going to fill it out tonight and then my mother is going to send it off."
Like so many other kids across the country, Thomas is proud of his accomplishments and is looking forward to officially cementing his college plans. He also likes that the signing means that he can make a return to a more normal lifestyle.
"At first all of the attention was really great, but after a while it got to be a little much," said Thomas. "It's nice to get back to focusing on school and basketball and not having to worry about all the people who wonder what you are going to do."
This season, Thomas and his teammates at Elizabeth (NJ) St. Patrick are going to play a schedule filled with national and local powerhouses and Phog.Net will be on hand to see him when he plays in Houston after Christmas. Thomas said that people will see a more expanded game out of his season, and he also wanted to clear up his actual height.
"People keep listing me at 6-7 and they say that I look short," said Thomas. "But, I'm really 6-8. People don't believe me and then they come stand next to me and realize that I am that tall."
