Point guard Jevon Thomas (Queens, N.Y./St. John's Northwest Military Academy) has committed to Kansas State over offers from Auburn, Seton Hall, Penn State, UNLV and Towson.
"I like how I will fit into their motion offense and I like how coach [Bruce] Weber [used] guards Deron Williams and Dee Brown,” Thomas said. “Plus, me and coach Chester Frazier are real cool."
The 6-foot 1, 178-pound Thomas, who is a 2013 post-grad, really played well at the Fishburne Best Western Plus Caisson Shootout in Waynesboro, Virginia, back in November. Against Hargrave Military Academy, Thomas topped the 30-point mark in an impressive 106-104 win.
Thomas is a strong, physical and attacking point guard who consistently makes plays off the bounce. He has great breakaway speed and quickness and can score through contact with ease. Thomas is an excellent penetrator and draw-and-kick passer, but make no mistake about it, he is looking to score first. He must work on being a better facilitator and improve his decision-making at times but he is a capable point and his talent and toughness are undeniable. He also competes for defensive rebounds as well.
Thomas joins another guard that can really score in bunches in the Wildcats 2013 recruiting class in Marcus Foster (Wichita Falls, Texas/Hirschi) and athletic forward Wesley Iwundu (Houston/Westfield) to give Weber some immediate help in the scoring department.
