Thomas Joining the Racers
Sunday afternoon Gilbert Thomas (TX) verbally committed to Murray State Head Coach Matt McMahon. The Class of 2016 small forward gives MSU some nice size on the wing. At 6-foot-7, Thomas will be as tall as any small forward operating in the OVC.
During his short stay at the helm, Coach McMahon has clearly made size a focus. Thomas joins 6-foot-8 power forward Jalen Dupree as likely members of Murray State’s recruiting class of 2016. Both are verbally committed, intending to sign.
Murray State battled several Texas-based colleges for his commitment.
Texas State, Prairie View A&M, Sam Houston State, Rider, Murray State, and Old Dominion existed as college offers. Thomas selected Murray State after his official visit to Murray, Kentucky.
It must be stated, that he is not formally signed up. Until the Early Signing Period of November, Thomas can’t be fully locked in.
