Chris Thomas of Chipola College, who verbally committed to Xavier this summer (and then de-committed), has signed his National Letter of Intent with Manhattan College. Many were shocked by the news that Thomas, who is one of the top 5 JUCO players in the country, but didn’t realize the connection Thomas has with the school.
Rasheen Davis, who is now in his first year as an assistant at Manhattan, spent the last two seasons as an assistant at Xavier. Davis recruited Thomas to Xavier and had a strong enough relationship to get him to sign at Manhattan. Thomas is an ultra athletic wing is explosive on the offensive end. He will be a major difference maker for the Jaspers next season.
