Elijah Thomas announced on Tuesday that he will be announcing where he will play his college ball on Tuesday, October 21st. He’ll be choosing between Illinois, SMU, Oklahoma State, LSU and Texas A&M.

Thomas is the No. 20 overall recruit in the Class of 2015, according to Rivals. He’s a bully on the block, a bruising 6-foot-9 center that can take over with his back to the basket.

“He’s a wide-bodied big man with good hands and a developing post skill set,” said Scott Phillips, NBCSports.com’s recruiting analyst. Phillips considers Thomas one of the most important players left in the class. “He rebounds really well in his area and if he loses some weight it will really benefit his game.”

Thomas just finished his official visit to SMU this past week and will be taking his final visit, to Texas A&M, next weekend, according to reports.
