Tough Decision Ahead For New Jersey Forward

A report on the status of New Jersey forward Quintrell Thomas ...

Quintrell Thomas, a tough 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward from St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey, is still pondering a decision. He had previously told us he was hoping to have a decision last Friday.

Currently, Thomas is leaning towards Kansas. But he stated: "Rutgers and UNLV are making it a hard decision."

Thomas also mentioned previous interest in Maryland, Seton Hall, Houston, Villanova, Pittsburgh, VCU and West Virginia. Reporters Mike Sullivan and Frank Mantesta were on hand this past weekend to speak to Thomas and watch him play.

Here are some previous thoughts on Thomas' game:

STRENGTHS: Great rebounder, shot blocker

AREA TO IMPROVE: Work on his jumper

EVALUATION: Thomas is a bull inside the paint. His ability to gobble up loose balls and score around the rim makes him a highly regarded prospect.

The perimeter game is an area to improve.
