Chris Thomas has expanded his top three into a top five.
The No. 1 shooting guard in the Class of 2013, Thomas now lists Xavier, Kentucky, Florida, Missouri and Iowa State as his top five, according to his grandmother, Latonia Smith.
“Those are his top five right now but that could change at any moment,” she told SNY.tv by text.
Seton Hall and Arkansas have also called, Smith said.
The 6-foot-5 Thomas, now at South Kent (Conn.), previously listed Xavier, Florida and Kentucky as his top three.
Smith previously told SNY.tv Thomas will likely make a decision sometime next spring or summer.
“He’ll probably decide after he graduates in May,” she said. “He’s going to be a fifth-year senior so he’s graduating in May and then he’ll continue in South Kent to get his D-1 credits.”
