"I don't have a leader," said Thomas, who was previously favoring St. John's University. "But I am interested in St. John's, Syracuse, and Connecticut. It's early to be thinking about my recruiting. Right now I am just trying to concentrate on the books."
Thomas, who played this past weekend for Gary Charles' Long Island Panthers team in the much heralded IS8 League in South Jamaica, Queens, is a terrific scorer who is very bouncy.
"I am trying to work on my defense this season," Thomas said. "I am also trying to work on my left hand and be more consistent in shooting from the perimeter."
Thomas is considered one of the better players in the 2006 class. He won't be with the Panthers on Saturdays anymore this IS8 season. "I had break this weekend," Thomas said. "But starting next week I go to school on Saturdays too. So if we play on Sunday I can play again."
The Panthers next game is Saturday at IS8.
