DANVILLE, Va. -- It had been almost a year to the day since I’d seen shooting guard Ahmad Thomas (Danville, Va./George Washington). Last September we caught him at a camp in Charlotte but this time around it was on his turf.

Thomas is a 6-foot-3 scoring guard who pumped in 16 points per game as a junior. At the workout Monday night, he was the best player on the floor. Delaware head coach Monte Ross made the trek from Newark (cheap plug for my hometown. Hi, mom). Thomas has offers from Robert Morris, Western Kentucky, Gardner Webb and Tennessee Tech. Charleston Southern was in the building watching him too. Delaware is likely to be Thomas’ first official visit.

The best part about making fall trips is reconnecting and gauging the progress of players. For Thomas, he exudes confidence and is laced with scoring talent. He’s an easy target for the programs on his list and given his explosion in the lane, likely a guy that can be not just a signee, but a good player in the program. This is his year, his team, his time.
