Thomas sparks interest among major college coaches

It's just getting started for Rob Thomas. But the college coaches are already licking their chops.

Thomas, the ultra-athletic 6-foot-5 190 pound wing player from South Kent Prep in Connecticut impressed at Sunday's Apple vs. Empire All-Star game at John Jay College in Manhattan, collecting 18 points- many in the paint- in a 101-95 loss.

Thomas gets the lion's share of his points off of his athleticism at this point, but he is an exceptional run/jump athlete who uses his springs to vault over defenders. He is quick off of his feet and sports a good second jump. He uses his athleticism to clean up inside, as well as his body control to angle through traffic for buckets.

While he has put a lot of serious thought into the recruiting process yet, the New York City native has a healthy following of schools.

"Some schools who are interested are Florida, South Florida, Miami, Syracuse, and a bunch of others," said Thomas. "Ohio State is one school that has offered a scholarship."

At the moment, a school's location isn't an overriding factor in his thought process.

"(A school's location) really doesn't matter," said Thomas. "I'll probably think about (the recruiting process) more around the start of my senior year."

Thomas travelled this summer with the New York Panthers, and participated in the ABCD Camp.

Rob previously attended St. Thomas More in Oakdale, Connecticut. Before that, he was one of the top scorers in the PSAL at Harlem's Wadleigh High School.

Thomas has not yet taken the SAT.
