Fresh off a SEC regular season title and a Sweet Sixteen appearance, the LSU Tigers were looking to make some loud noise once again this year. Although it has been a slower than expected start to the college basketball season, head coach Will Wade landed a massive commitment and one of the best scorers in high school basketball.
It’s an exciting time for Tiger fans right now, and it got even better when Oak Hill Academy (VA) shooting guard Cam Thomas committed to headline LSU’s 2020 recruiting class on Monday. The five-star guard chose the Tigers over Auburn, NC State and UCLA.
Cameron Thomas Commits to LSU
A consensus Top-30 recruit by 247Sports (24), Rivals (30), and ESPN (18), Thomas was recruited to LSU by assistant coach Bill Armstrong. Thomas joins a three-man class of Walker (LA) point guard Jalen Cook and his Oak Hill teammate, center Bradley Ezewiro.
Thomas already signed his National Letter of Intent, too, making his arrival in Baton Rouge next season official.
Five-Star Guard Cam Thomas Highlights
When you watch Thomas play, you can easily see why he’s one of the top prep players in the country. The Chesapeake, Virginia native is undoubtedly one of the most gifted scorers you will find anywhere. He even led the Nike EYBL in scoring while playing for Boo Williams this past summer.
Thomas, a 6-foot-3 guard who also fielded offers from big programs such as Kansas, Florida, Oregon and UConn, will definitely be an immediate impact player at the NCAA level for LSU basketball and has plenty of NBA potential.
To say this is a massive get for Will Wade would be an understatement. The Tigers college football team might be getting a lot of the headlines these days, but LSU’s basketball recruiting is alive and well.
Cam Thomas is the real deal.
