    Flo Thamba, the 6-foot-10 center, 230-pound from Mountain Mission (Virginia) and the Team Loaded NC AAU program, has committed to Baylor, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    “Was just the perfect fit and I developed a good relationship with Coach [Scott] Drew and his staff,” Thamba said. “I have a good feel for the school and as well I believe in what they have for me.”

    A native of The Democratic Republic of the Congo who grew up in South Africa before coming to the U.S. three years ago, Thamba chose the Bears over Virginia Tech, Illinois, and Nebraska.

    Thamba took an official visit to Waco on Dec. 9 and an unofficial on Jan. 1.

    Thamba is the third commitment in the 2018 class for Drew along with small forward Matthew Mayer and shooting guard Darius Allen.

    “Flo’s work ethic alone speaks volumes,” his AAU coach Derrick Wall said. “Flo constantly works on his craft all the times. Flo runs the floor like a guard, very athletic, high-level rebounder and defender. Once his offensive skill set catches up, the sky is the limit for Flo.”

    According to 247Sports, Thamba is the No. 14 center in the class of 2018 and the No. 6 player from the state of Virginia.
