Last season, 2013 prospect Sindarius Thornwell averaged 26.9 points per game.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard also snagged 8.6 rebounds, earning South Carolina AAAA Player of the Year honors.
The production has earned Thornwell a number of scholarship offers, and most recently from Ohio State and head coach Thad Matta.
A superstar at South Lancaster H.S. (SC), Thomas is now preparing for his final season at the national prep powerhouse, Oak Hill Academy (VA). Thomas will take his game to the collegiate level in 2013-14 and with a long list of suitors, the race for his services continues.
In addition to his recent offer from Ohio State, Thornwell also boasts rides from Boston College, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Memphis, Miami (FL), Missouri, North Carolina State, UNC-Wilmington, South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Cincinnati, Charlotte, Georgia Southern, Tennessee, and Wake Forest.
Thornwell’s decision to attend Oak Hill Academy may impact his recruiting even more should the guard be able to continue his stellar play. It’s highly unlikely that Thornwell will match his 26.9 points per game from South Lancaster, but the competition will be much stiffer, giving him ample opportunity to refine other areas of his game.
As his recruitment continues to gain steam, the recent addition of a scholarship offer from Ohio State only provides additional evidence of his potential.
Thornwell is considered a top-50 recruit nationally by many recruiting serices.
