Boo Williams (VA) will enter the EYBL with four 5-star recruits, and they'll be led by 2018 veteran Cam Thomas. In 16 games as a sophomore, the 6-foot-3 junior averaged 19.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists while shooting 90 percent from the line on 91 attempts. Thomas parlayed that success into a stellar junior campaign at powerhouse Oak Hill Academy (VA). Starring alongside 2019 top-ranked guard Cole Anthony, Thomas averaged 26.4 points, 3.9 assists, and 2.0 steals per game in 36 games for Oak Hill.
Thomas doesn't lack confidence on the offensive end, and he'll have the green light from the coaching staff as they prepare to enter the season.
