Elijah Thomas Sets 5 Official Visits

Elijah Thomas has now set all five of his official visits.

The 6-foot-9 Thomas from Rockwall (TX) Lancaster will visit LSU Sept. 6, Oklahoma State Sept. 13, Illinois Sept. 20, SMU Oct. 3 and Texas A&M Oct. 11.

UNLV is the only one of his six finalists that won’t receive an official visit.

Thomas Tweeted the visits and Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com also reported them.

Thomas told SNY.tv at the Reebok Classic Breakout last month that he plans to take all five visits “before I decide where I’m going, but I plan to sign in November.”

His AAU teammate, 6-foot Jawun Evans, one of the top point guards in the Class of 2015, trimmed his list to four schools  — Illinois, Oklahoma State, Texas and USC. He will reportedly visit USC Aug. 29 and Illinois Sept. 5.

Illinois coach John Groce and his staff and Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford and his staff were all over both Thomas and Evans in July at the Reebok Classic Breakout, when Evans told SNY.tv. a package was possible.

“It’s on our mind, that would be a good thing for us to be playing together since AAU started, so it would probably be a good thing,” Evans said last month.

Thomas also mentioned that they could team up in college with 6-3 Dallas (TX) James Madison shooting guard Admon Gilder, and SMU and Oklahoma State are among those in the mix for Gilder.
