“It was a great visit,” the 6-foot-6, 215-pound Thomas, the No. 6 small forward in the class, said by phone. “I got a chance to just really enjoy L.A., see how people live in L.A. I got a tour of the city and saw the campus. It was a big campus. I got a chance to meet the trainers and academic people so that was great. Just seeing the history of UCLA was great.”
Cook, the No. 7 point guard in the class, also said by text the visit “went well.”
Thomas said the two of them spoke about potentially playing together and how they might fit in at UCLA.
“I’ve been knowing Quinn for two, three years now,” Thomas said. “He’s real good.”
“I talked to him and [freshman guard] Tyler Lamb,” Thomas said. “We all discussed the guys leaving, [forward] Tyler Honeycutt and [guard] Malcolm Lee might be leaving if they have good years. We could fill those positions and get after it next year.”
Thomas has also visited Tennessee and Arkansas and still has Florida (Oct. 9) and Memphis (Oct. 15).
“They’re all equal,” Thomas said of his schools.
Cook is slated to visit Duke Oct. 15 with the Blue Devils’ newest commit, Austin Rivers.
He also mentioned visiting Villanova Oct. 22 and trying to get to Kansas.
