¿Do any UNR or SoNV fans have any insight on PF Dischon Thomas?

Recommended Posts

 

This 6'9" Power Frwd recently de-committed from UNR & signed w/CSU.  

He also had an offer from Southern Nevada.  boise JC fans will be jealous, because he also had Princeton & Cornell offers as well.

¿How does a kid who plays HS basketball in El PHX, play on an AAU team in Compton, SoCal?

TIA for any additional info.

 

¡¡¡ GO STATE !!!

They parted ways so Nevada could make room for Stevenson. An impact transfer from Pitt. 

Thomas would be more of a project and Muss has made it obvious its transfers and Jucos with an occasional high rated recruit for incoming classes.

Definitely a project, but he's got a ton of upside.  I can see passing on him if your looking for the finished product.  I'm also really excited to see this kid after a D1 weight room and D1 coaching take effect.  If he sticks for the full duration, he'll be all conference at some point.

From the article linked above:

Quote

 

Thomas' father, Howard, who also serves as his high school coach, told the Reno Gazette Journal on Thursday afternoon his son is no longer committed to Nevada after a recent discussion with Wolf Pack coach Eric Musselman.

"After such a great run last year they were able to attract players that they were not sure they could get before," Howard Thomas said in a message to the RGJ. "Coach Muss gave us a call the other day to explain the situation. He is a class act. A lot of coaches would have waited and possibly put the kid in a last-minute bind. Coach let us know early enough to be able to explore other options. Much respect for Coach."

 

 

Well, you have exactly ONE mid year transfer, a fringe guy who lost his starting gig at a mediocre major, and ONE  2 star JC transfer coming next year so it only makes sense you would pass on a 3 star "project" in order to keep the remaining spots open for the McD's All America West Squad and Zion Williamson after Coach K pisses him off.......I guess.

ROFLMAO

Here's what the article really says:  " Look, the kids dad is an important resource for recruits and I don't want to hang his kid out to dry when I take off next year, leaving him in the middle of the SMOKING CRATER that will be Reno basketball when I'm gone" said Coach Muss.  

  "Much respect to Coach Muss"  said important HS basketball coach.

I don't hate.  I think your administration has allowed a coach to do lasting damage to your program and by extension, the conference in furtherance of his career.

  Transfers won't save you next year. If that's the route he plans to take, the only transfers that will help are grad transfers and JC's. 

You have ZERO incoming freshmen and the list of your targets is replete with guys being recruited by Blue Bloods and high majors.

Your fans are totally ok with that for 1 more NCAA berth and possibly a S16. 

It's just analysis. I'm probably wrong and Muss has a bunch of 5 stars and grad tansfers stashed at the bowling alley downtown.

Haha alright big guy...

Even without Musselman, our roster will likely be the best in the conference next season. You're sounding worse than PH.

It's always a possibility and for some a wet dream. Because when your program hires a career assistant -- that's all you got.

He’d be dumb not to leave.  Leave now while you still can.  His stock will never be higher.

You mean the career assistant that's 2-1 against your D-league squad?

LOL

That’s the one. It’s okay. I’m sure you’re too proud to admit he’s not long for San Diego.
