Would love to get this kid. Great size and has the pedigree with his brother playing good as a rookie and a cousin that will be a first round pick in this year's draft

As young said he has great size for a PG. I've seen him listed anywhere from 6-4 to 6-7 but most sites have him at least 6-5. Not sure what his stats are.

I noticed that Walter had recently followed him on Facebook, but I didn't post that info. I think I saw that Thomasi was listed at 6'5. From video I saw, he is an incredible passer and athlete. His passing is definitely influenced by Magic Johnson!

Looks like a Walter type of player. Does have an offer from South Carolina. Having his size, ball handling skills, and athleticism would be a big asset. Obviously, Aces still need another big, but you can't pass on somebody like this.

It’s a good day to be on campus!

And timing always plays a part in this stuff.

I have my fingers crossed.

Walter is doing a great job of getting kids to visit that under past regimes would have never given UE the time of day. To be sure, high-level recruits are going to check out all their options, as they well should. Yes, I would like to see them sign right away. But I have no problem with a young man who wants to check out all his possibilities. Both sides have to be happy with their choice. I am no longer in the habit of short selling the Aces...it is entirely a unique program and school which has a lot to be proud of. Let a kid get a good look from places he is curious about - Evansville is a great place to be and hopefully some will see and understand that too.
