Elijah Thomas, the 6-foot-9 big man from Lancaster (TX), will announce his college choice at 1:30 Central Time on Oct. 21 at his high school.
Thomas has already visited LSU, SMU, Oklahoma State and Illinois, with Texas A&M up this coming weekend. Oklahoma State recently landed a pledge from Thomas’ AAU teammate Jawun Evans, which could impact the big man’s decision.
“His decision is going to be hard for me not to think about joining him,” Thomas told SNY.tv recently.
Thomas is ranked No. 28 in the 247Sports Composite for the Class of 2015.
