Kevin Thomas joins Canadian trio at Texas Longhorns

Maybe we should be asking Mark Few or Rick Barnes to coach the Canadian national basketball team instead of Leo Rautins.

The Texas Longhorns have added another big time Canadian basketball recruit to their 2011-2012 Roster.

Kevin Thomas, a 6-foot-7, 205-pound, senior power forward from Creedmoor, N.C. Christian Faith Academy, will join fellow Canadians Myck Kabongo, Cory Joseph and Tristan Thompson. The four Canadian basketball players on the roster will match the Gonzaga Bulldogs and their Canadian strong pipeline connection.

The Ajax resident has a bright future ahead of him and already boast a pretty impressive list of accolades, including international experience with Canada Basketball and the FIBA Americas U18 team.

Other schools who expressed interest included Wake Forest, Seton Hall and New Mexico State.

An athletic forward, Kevin Thomas has the opportunity to be a contributor right away, specially if Tristan Thompson decides to take the one and done route and take his skill-set to the majors.

Where will Andrew Wiggins land?
