Chris Thomas is one of the most talented basketball prospects in the country, but he has also been well traveled in recent years. There's now going to be more uncertainty in Thomas’ basketball career.
The 6-foot-5 scorer has decommitted from Xavier and reopened his recruitment, CBSSports.com has learned.
This is just the latest in a number of destination changes for Thomas.
He started out in his hometown of Denver at Montbello (Colo.) but never played a game there. After that, Thomas attended Princeton Day Academy (Md.) and then planned to enroll at Westwind Prep (Ariz.). After deciding not to attend Westwind, he ended his high school career with a couple of months at South Kent Prep (Conn.) – before enrolling at Chipola Junior College in Florida, where he took classes but didn’t play last season. Thomas reportedly obtained his GED at Chipola and is expected to begin taking classes this year.
Thomas seemed to settle down at Chipola, committing to Xavier last April. However, sources claim that Thomas wants the feeling of being recruited like some of his teammates at Chipola. Xavier has had its share of turmoil in recent weeks, with Dezmine Wells being expelled and freshmen Myles Davis and Jalen Reynolds being ruled ineligible.
One of the best pure scoring guards in the country, Thomas was rated as a five-star prospect in the class of 2013. He is long, athletic and knows how to get points at all three levels. He can create his own shot against nearly any defender. Thomas does need to keep his emotions under control, as he was prone to outbursts and had a tendency to pick up technical fouls during his time in high school.
