Thrasher is an electric young star. Thrasher is a versatile scorer but bringing a rainmaker shot from deep is his calling card. But over the summer he worked hard on scoring off the bounce for strong finishes inside. Thrasher is also known for his defense. He is long for a 6’3 frame, gets after opponents with scrappy tenacious defense and can guard multiple positions. He has deceptive speed that gives him an advantage on both ends. He shifted his game from just being a perimeter shooter to playing more inside and developing a mid-range to post-move, making him a more complete offensive player. Determined to accomplish that same mentality on the defensive end, working hard to be more physical and imposing inside. That paid off big time.

Thrasher is naturally a monster on the boards as his high motor makes him like a magnet to the ball. Last season tells one of the best stories of the year. He came off the bench for very few minutes as a freshman on a team with 10 seniors and 3 juniors and averaged 3pts, 2rebs, and 1asts. This stud fought, scrapped, and willed his way into more playing time. With that he delivered. He increased his average to 7pts, 4rebs, 1blks, and 1stl. Also, to his credit he had multiple games where he made 3 or 4 threes. What he did next is equally impressive. Thrasher elevated his game even more earning a starting spot. With that opportunity in the 20-game (school summer ball) stretch, Thrasher averaged double figures scoring almost every game and was beast mode rebounding nearly the same.

On the biggest stage of the national tournament in Florida, he went off for 19pts in their final game. Remember the defense is his other calling card so he was a game-changer out there on both ends. Looking forward to the upcoming season he has set some high goals. Thrasher wants to be an all-region performer as a sophomore and help lead his team not only to a regional championship but a state championship and a serious run at a national championship. The kid been putting in the work grinding hard every day to make it a reality.

Coaches take notes now this is one of the fiercest competitors in the country, and on a mission to be that D1 leader who not only will impact a team but change its very culture. Thrasher is a proven winner, and his determination and grit earned him the respect of everyone who sees him play, including me. You have to get down to Georgia and catch him now because this train is just taking off. I’m hyped to catch him again this season as often as I can to see exactly what he will do next as his stock continues to rise as well as his skills.
