On the heels of being eliminated from Darrell Arthur's school list, Indiana has now fallen off the school list of another big time recruit. Isaiah Thomas, a 5-foot-8, 160-pound point guard from Curtis Senior High School in Tacoma, Wash., is down to five schools and no longer has Indiana on the list due to the resignation of Coach Mike Davis.
"I'm not looking at Indiana anymore," said Thomas about the school that was once in a strong position to land the dynamic scoring guard. "I'm done with Indiana. Coach Davis had a lot to do with me being interested in them."
Now, Thomas is down to Washington, Florida, UCLA, Georgetown and Kentucky. All but Georgetown have offered.
Thomas plans to commit by the end of the spring.
"I haven't set the dates yet, but in March I'm going on unofficial visits to UCLA and Florida," he said. "I might take some more visits after I take the ACT the first of April. This spring, I'd say Mayish, I'd like to make a commitment."
Despite the change in his recruitment, there has been little change for Thomas on the court as his squad is still ranked No. 1 in the state with a 20-1 record. Thomas is averaging 32.7 points and 6 assists per game, and Curtis Senior has one playoff win already under its belt.
Isaiah Thomas scouting report:
A dynamic scorer who is very crafty with the ball, Thomas has a flair to his game and a penchant for hitting the big shot. His size has yet to be an issue offensively, but he will need to improve his strength to be successful defensively at the high-major level. Nonetheless, he does have a knack for coming up with the ball.
