A quick update on Cincinnati Aiken’s Aaron Thomas

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.

In case you missed it, here’s the video interview with Thomas from last month’s adidas May Classic:

    Just thought I would post Perea jumping to touch a ball 12ft off the ground…plus two inches.

    No one transfers until AFTER they have a chance to prove that they can play during the 2010-11 season.

    Every player deserves and should get the full 2010-11 season to show what they can produce on the floor. But yes, pending how each plays, I think that you keep Bawa over Pritchard if it comes to that at the end of 2011. If we need two to leave early it should be Pritchard and Roth in May of 2011. Those two with Rivers means we can take 3 in 2011. If we want 4 then the next to leave is a real dilemma. But 2012 is too far away to worry about. Both Creek and Watford might, after their Junior years, be in a position to play in the NBA. With Michael and Jones regular graduation that leaves open 4 spots plus the oversign which makes 5.

    Maybe the coaches ask him to hold off for a month?

  • Outoftheloop

    I agree with you.

  • Outoftheloop

    Good point!

    Hey, Daniel Moore is the ONLY really TOUGH GUY on our roster! Sometimes you need a guy to stick his face right in the opposition! Danny has NO FEAR! He is a very good walk-on.

    I agree on Thomas.
