All Metro (high
school – Baton Rouge) (04), Second Team All-State (Louisiana – high
school) (04), Second Team All-SEC (06), SEC Freshman of the Year (06).
An extremely athletic high leaping post player.
soar above the rim to dunk strong. Blocks an unbelievable amount of
shots and changes even more due to his presence. Is a great rebounder.
Runs the floor well and finishes even better. Shoots for a very high
percentage. Is a double-double waiting to happen every game.
Needs to add weight to his frame – is still too thin to play the post in
the NBA. Doesn’t have very deep range on his jump shot – only shot (and
hit) one 3-pointer this season. Still very inexperienced – was a
medical redshirt his first year in school and then played one season –
and game is still raw.
Projected 2006 Draft
3 pick (possibly 1st overall).
has sky rocketed after his play in the NCAA tournament. His great
leaping ability, athleticism and shot blocking prowess have scouts
drooling. With this year’s draft considered to be a fairly weak one,
this could be Thomas’ shot to go 1st overall – with Greg Oden
already penciled in as the #1 guy in 07.
