In regards to Cam Thomas:

Lastly, Thomas has been an NC State lean for a while, but the longer things have gone, the less likely it seems he will end up in Raleigh. Look for UConn with Thomas, as the Huskies have picked up ground with him of late. #UConn

Hard to not see a connection between the increase in attention on Thomas and the trending downward with Jackson. With only two scholarships and, conceivably, Bouknight/Polley/Sid still here, it’s hard to justify another wing versus a guy like Cam Thomas who is one of the most, if not THE most, elite scorers in the class.

I've heard nothing but good things on the Thomas front and that it's a rare case of a lot of recruiting stuff working out in our favor. He's *kind of* falling into our laps a bit.
It's not too often a 5* recruit falls into your lap. Hopefully the staff can capitalize on it.

Think Bouknight would start over Cole
Well Cole is a PG and Bouknight is a 6'5" SG/SF so they don't really compete for time. The battle will be Gaffney or Cole as PG in 2020-21.

Thomas is a CG, Alterique is a PG, and Bouknight is a SG/SF. Idt we'd start two point guards

hate asking for so much, but if cam could commit by november it would go a long way towards filling the 2 other presumed spots, not to mention the carry over to 2021. hurley could have his choice of remaining targets

Kenya.

He's been grinding behind the scenes. Not a lot of credit for recruits yet, but I think calrton's growth and this recruitment have his stamp on them
This sounds right on both. Kenya was reputed to have strong ties thru Baltimore/DC and the mid-Atlantic states.

Hopefully we can hang on to him for a few more years. Sounds like he's setting himself up as a prime HC candidate.

Thomas's variety of footwork to get his shot off, and tough shotmaking ability is incredible. Shows a real natural ability, but obviously a lot of hours in the gym too.

Bonus is that he's just a little bit small for his position in the NBA, and needs some time in a great s&c program. so I would think he's a likely candidate for 2 and done. Top 5 player if he's an inch taller and jumps a little bit better.

His oak hill stats for those curious, or too lazy to look...


23.5MPG
26.2PPG --best on the team by 8 points.
3.8 RPG
3.4 APG
1.9 TO
1.9 STL
0.4 BLK

50.2FG%
37.6 3PFG%
82.1FT%
