Highly recruited Canadian basketball player Kevin Thomas has failed to qualify academically and will forgo his freshmen season with the Texas Longhorns.
Thomas (6’7, Wing) will now entertain the JUCO route with hopes of improving his grades and eventually getting back to elite status.
Myck Kabongo (Toronto) and Kevin Thomas were expected to form a new dynamic duo, similar to what many Longhorns fans witnessed last year with Canadians Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph.
Maybe Canadian basketball fans should applaud Tristan Thompson for passing out on the 2012 London Olympic qualifiers with the Canadian Senior Men’s Team. After all he’s insuring himself a future after basketball.
Books still matter after all.
