Aaron Thomas, a 6-4, four-star guard from Aiken High School in Cincinnati, is one of the top prospects Indiana expects at this weekend’s Elite Camp in Bloomington.
The Elite Camp, which is closed to the media and the public, will take place on Saturday and Sunday.
Tim Johnson, one of Thomas’ coaches on the Queen City Prophets, told Inside the Hall on Thursday night that the Cincinnati native is looking forward to the weekend.
“He loves coming to Bloomington,” Johnson said. “He likes Coach Crean. He definitely loves the new facilities. He’s always looking forward to competition. He’s pretty excited.”
After Thomas told a group of assembled media at last month’s adidas May Classic that Indiana had offered a scholarship, there were later conflicting reports that an offer had not been officially extended by the IU staff.
Johnson, however, believes the offer is indeed on the table.
“It’s my understanding that he he has an offer from Indiana,” he said.
Thomas, who averaged 22.1 points per game as a junior at Aiken and was named the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference Player of the Year, does not appear to be any closer to a decision than he was a month ago.
“He’ll definitely wait until July,” Johnson said.
