“He should be making a decision in the next day or so,” Derrick Bobbitt, Thomas’ AAU coach, wrote in a text.
The 6-foot-8 Thomas is transferring from Kansas and has visited all three schools.
His weekend visit to Siena went well, by all accounts.
UNLV was near the top of his list the first time around and appears to be this time as well. He has spoken with head coach Lon Kruger and assistant Lew Hill, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
“As soon as I announced I was transferring, one of my [high school] coaches told me they wanted to get in contact with me,” Thomas told the newspaper.“It’s a very real option,” he said. Thomas spent one year at Kansas in which he averaged 1.5 points and 2.0 rebounds. Next year he would be playing behind fellow sophomores Markieff and Marcus Morris, returning big man Cole Aldrich and probably incoming freshman Thomas Robinson as well.
