Malik Thomas, a 6-foot-6, 175-pound versatile forward from Wadleigh High School in New York City, should have a fine division one college basketball career based upon how he finished up his high school year.

Thomas, who competed for the Jordan Brand City team in a game played inside Madison Square Garden last month, showcased many areas of his game that should be beneficial to his future four-year career.

MALIK THOMAS' GAME IN THE JORDAN BRAND CITY/SUBURBAN CLASSIC:

Malik played about half of the 40-minute contest, showing discipline and patience in his offensive game.

He didn't force any shots and looked to rotate the ball smartly to open teammates. Thomas scored six points, hitting three of four shots from the floor. He also made an impact on the defensive side of the ball.

Malik also had two rebounds and even more impressive were his five assists.

HIS FUTURE:

Thomas will be a quality player for Boston University. He's the type of competitor that helps his team win in many ways, making contributions on both sides of the ball, working hard on every possession.
