By ADAM ZAGORIAL.J. Thomas, the 6-foot-2 point guard from Bull City Prep (NC), committed to N.C. State on Wednesday
Thomas is ranked the No. 22 point guard in 2022 and also considered Memphis, Houston, Georgia, Ole Miss and the Overtime Elite League.
He played hurt this summer but is a good player who should help the Wolfpack going forward.
“LJ is a great leader on and off the court,” said Bull City Prep coach Darryl Harris. “He plays with such great pace and runs the team on both ends of the floor. He can really shoot the ball from anywhere on the floor.”
