Thomas, a 6 foot 9 power forward, is ranked #29 in the ESPN 100. He is a traditional low post player that can finish with either hand and rebounds the ball well. He is also a solid fundamental player and can score the ball in bunches. Watch Thomas' mixtape below.
Elijah Thomas will be joining a loaded Texas A&M class. The Aggies already have commitments from Tyler Davis, D.J. Hogg, and Admon Gilder. Thomas is going to form a dominant front court with Davis (#20 in the ESPN 100). Both play with great intensity and are going to compliment each other nicely. In the backcourt the Aggies will have Hogg (#35 in the ESPN 100) and Gidler (#64 in the ESPN 100). Hogg is a lights out shooter and can heat up in an instant. Gidler will also serve as a three point threat, and has the ability to pass the ball well.
Texas A&M is building up a contending basketball program, and quickly. The addition of Thomas solidifies their 2015 recruiting class. Now known as a football school, Texas A&M will soon be known as a college basketball powerhouse.
