2025 Caleb Thomas of the WV Gold AAU and a junior at Spring Mills High School is an electrifying athlete on both ends of the court. At the U.S. Basketball tournament at Lake Point, this gem at 6’6 is a game-changer. The perfect wing that fuels the offense as Thomas can be a great facilitator with solid ball handling and threads the needle passing. Didn’t take much of watching Thomas to understand the beast he is and a potential superstar.
Explosive off the bounce and is a strong finisher. He can be an incredible force in the paint and can be unstoppable with the size and strength to overpower defenders at will. He was tremendous on the boards, gobbling up boards with the best out there. And his defensive impact on the court can certainly be felt, as he is a ruthless shot blocker.
Thomas' upside is also crazy high. How is this powerful prospect under the radar' The numbers don’t lie.
For this tournament, he averaged 16pts, 6asts, 9rebs, and 5blks per game which improved on his season average 10.9pts, 10.6rebs, 4.7 blks, 4.2 asts, and 1stl.' Any way you cut it, this kid is an absolute star that if you see him shine, you can never ignore. He flat-out dominates every minute he plays.
Coaches, get this kid on your radar now. If you are looking for that dog to change your program, that search ends here. Thomas is that guy you must have.
