Could be a great get.
Knows how to get to the basket.
Knows how to deliver the pass inside and out.
Could still be growing. Older stories have him at 6’5 . Newer ones have him at 6’7. He may get bigger still.

Ever since I saw him retweet a tweet saying something like don't go where you want to go, go where they want you I've felt optimistic about getting him.

Given how announcing signings happened last year his Twitter post does not follow. Don't jump all over me. I really hope he chooses the Aces. I anxiously await five o'clock.

Does anyone know if we officially offered Thomasi?

I know he came on a visit and he would be a great get but I don't see any official offer on verbalcommits.
I do realize that they are not always up to date on their offers.

Very very few official visits are taken when a scholarship is not offered. It happens, but unless there is something "non-basketball" related, there would have been zero reason they would not offer an exceptional player as he. We will find out soon.

Actually, I am noticing a little bit of a pattern with our coaching staff. Whether by design or not, all of a sudden, we have a kid that came from nowhere. Nobody knew they had an offer. Just a sudden commitment. Seems like the ones he offers (and the ones that we really talk about) may just be “smokescreens”, hiding who he is really going for. Three of four last year we never heard about before they committed (DeAndre, Rosel, and Shamar).

Needless to say, don’t be surprised if another one or two pop up in a week or so. I won’t be.

Oh, and Thomasi also did NOT hold an offer from UE on his 24/7 page either. Most of these sites use Twitter, so if the player doesn’t tweet at them, they don’t know about it.
