Antonio Thomas from Bogan is an intriguing post prospect in the 2015 class. The junior power forward impressed with Chicago Select 16U during the summer at several tournaments. Thomas has a long and wiry frame that he will need to continue to add weight onto as time goes on. Defensively he impressed protecting the rim and rebounding well for his team.
On the offensive end he finished strong in the paint and made quick aggressive moves toward the basket when the ball was in his hands. He is quick to the offensive boards. Thomas also has a knack for drawing fouls.
What does he feel his strengths are as a player?
“On the offensive glass I have to box out the big man and take control. I set good screens for open shots. Get the fastbreak started by getting the ball to the guards.”
Bogan had a great run in the summer including making deep runs in several June tournaments. Thomas is looking to build on that summer success.
“We are good and young. We do not have any seniors on our team. We beat top-notch teams such as Orr, Marshall, and Farragut. We are going to have a lot to look forward to this year.”
