4-Star 2020 SG Cam Thomas Talks NC State

Published

on

4-Star 2020 Shooting Guard Cam Thomas (6’3″/180) recently discussed his recruitment with Corey Evans of Rivals, and he had good things to say about the Wolfpack.

NC State: “It was a great first visit. It was to learn just how coach (Kevin) Keatts and coach (James) Johnson interact with their players. I was very impressed, and I loved being on campus with them. They are great people.

“He (Keatts) is a player’s coach and a guard’s coach. He says he lets his guards go and that I would be perfect for his system and that I am just a guy that he loves.” (Rivals)

Thomas already took his first (and only thus far) official visit to NC State back in October, but is looking to take one to Miami as well.

“I think that I am going to be taking an official visit to Miami,” he said. “They just offered me and Pitt wants me to come to a game whenever they play UNC on Jan. 5. Miami would be an official, and Pitt would be an unofficial.”

“I think I am going to take most of my official visits whenever my season is over with and focus on my season now and then get some visits done before my AAU season starts up,” he said. (Rivals)

The Oak Hill (Virginia) standout is right on the verge of a 5-star rating, sitting at #29 overall in the 2020 class according to ESPN.

Check out the rest of Evans article to see what he had to say about Auburn, Illinois, Miami, Pitt, UCONN and Virginia Tech.
