Final 5 For Thomas

The saga that is Lance Thomas' recruitment may have reached its next stage. The 6-foot-8 five-star recruit has taken just one official visit and all indications point to his lengthy list being recently shortened to just five schools.

As recently as early this week Scout.com reported that Lance Thomas had not yet had the opportunity to trim his list to a final 5.

"He hasn't had a chance to narrow his list down as much as he had hoped," said Lance Thomas' uncle and unofficial recruiting coordinator Monty Montgomery.

The lengthy list included a number of local schools and elite programs from around the country. Arizona, Connecticut, Duke, Florida, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Rutgers, St. John's, Villanova, Wake Forest, Louisville, Miami (Fl), Seton Hall, and Syracuse seemed to be in prime position to make the next cut for Thomas.

And finally, sources indicate, the final 5 may have been decided on.

Jeff Goodman of Scout.com reports that Thomas' handful include Arizona, which he has already officially visited - along with UConn, Duke, Florida and Rutgers.
