Sunrise Mountain High School's athletically gifted 6-foot-5, 200-pound junior wing prospect Elijah Thomas is a high-major athlete that probably would be looking at a future pro career in football as a tight-end if he chose to go that route, but instead, he is a versatile wing prospect that is capable of scoring from inside and out and excels in the open floor.
Thomas has quickly emerged as one of the state's top 2016 prospects, and is one prospect I will be keeping a very close eye on throughout the spring and summer evaluation periods. Thomas is coming off an excellent junior season, where he led his high school program to a very strong 25-4 overall record this season in the Division-II Class. Thomas' numbers were excellent - averaging 19.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per/game this season. A stat-sheet stuffer, Thomas is primed to have a huge senior season for his high school program. Especially after the loads of experience that he will gain against top-rated competition this club season.
This young man is a sure-fire big-time talent for the future that will have many college programs salivating this club season. A superb sleeper prospect that will make a lot of noise over the next few months.
