Arizona's 2018 class of prospects is absolutely loaded with talent for the future, and many of the prospects in the class are already generating loads of college interest. One prospect in the class that is getting good attention early is Cesar Chavez High School's talented 6-foot-7 sophomore forward Dischon Thomas.
Thomas moved to the state of Arizona from North Carolina just two years ago and immediately became one of the top prospects in the class as a result. After a solid sophomore season for Cesar Chavez HS, Thomas played very well this spring on the club circuit with the Powerhouse Hoops 15U team.
In the process, Thomas would receive his first scholarship offer during the West Coast Elite Spring Classic event in Las Vegas recently - receiving an offer from Cal State Northridge University.
Thomas would leave his club program, Powerhouse, at the completion of the Vegas event, and now will continue his play the remainder of the spring and this summer with the I-10 Celtics.
Thomas is a superb young talent with a very bright future ahead of him. Still only a mere 15 years of age, Thomas still has a lot of growth ahead of himself and should develop very nicely over time. Look for Thomas to become a nice recruiting target among Arizona's 2018 class over the next year. I will continue to follow his college recruitment closely and bring you any updates as they continue to develop.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Thomas is a superb young talent with a very bright future ahead of him. A long and lengthy forward prospect with loads of talent for the future with excellent upside as a player. Thomas is a skilled combo-forward with a nice perimeter shooting stroke with range, and an ability to score inside and out. He has a good length of body and a nice wingspan and is still growing a great deal, which will help him a great deal over time in his ability to develop into a serious division-I prospect. Thomas has a high basketball IQ and knows how to play the post position, while also being able to step outside and make perimeter shots. An active rebounder and shotblocker also, Thomas utilizes his length to make plays - an excellent offensive rebounder. Thomas' wingspan also makes him a good shotblocker. He also has good timing as a shotblocker and changes shots of players around the paint. He should really improve in this area over time. Still only 15 years of age, so he has nice upside.
