Well if so, then Oklahoma State and our good buddy Travis Ford may have your man. Ibrahima Thomas. a 6’11” big man from OSU has been granted his release by OSU to transfer in the next few weeks. Thomas is a native of Senegal (like our man Jules) and was averaging 8 points a game for the Cowboys. However he wasnt a fan of the new Ford regime in Stillwater and decided to leave the team. Jeff Goodman of Foxsports reported that there was some dispute as to why, with Travis Ford suggesting that he had been told that Thomas wanted to return to Senegal. However Thomas disputes that and now he is looking around. Goodman reports that Thomas is looking at a number of Big East schools, Villanova, Cincinnati, Rutgers, Marquette and also Kentucky.
With Coach Clyde’s affinity for big long guys, this three star prospect could be the mysterious transfer that caused such a stir over the holidays. Or it could not….who the hell knows. As for Jai Lucas, he decides tonight, and after a recent conversation with him, I would be highly surprised if its Kentucky. My best guess is Texas, but even that is a guess, as Jai is keeping things much closer to the vest this time around. We wish him luck on whatever he decides (around 10 pm tonight).
