Player: Blanca Thomas
School: Charlotte Catholic
We haven’t had a chance to watch Thomas in action yet this season but hopefully, we will be able to do so soon. But that doesn’t mean this young freshman is catching the attention already from coaches and fans around the state already. Thomas is a 6’4 center already as a young prospect and her highlight films early on show that she has the early intrigue with her skillset, footwork, and ability to produce around the paint.
When speaking with Thomas more about her game, she mentioned that she liked to play fast, get in the paint, and operate off the elbows. “In my eyes, my best skills are finishing around and at the hoop, my passing ability, rim protecting, and my defense.”
Talk about college coaches noticing talent early on, Thomas already has earned multiple Division I offers from college coaches, including a few high-major programs. Currently, she has earned offers from Ole Miss, Western Carolina, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia, while other college programs are expressing interest her way.
“It’s been a great learning experience and it’s been fun to get to know the different types of coaching staffs and school,” she told Phenom Hoops. “Some coaches have said that they love my footwork and how I can finish at the basket.”
