Thomas, who joins teammates Javonte Smart and Trendon Watford in the 2021 draft pool, was the Tigers’ leading scorer in 2020-21, averaging 23.0 points per contest in 29 games (34.0 MPG). Although the 19-year-old struggled a little with his shot from the floor (40.6%) and from beyond the three-point line (32.5%), his ability to get to the free throw line (7.6 attempts per game) and make his foul shots (88.2%) was a big plus.
Thomas currently ranks 15th overall on ESPN’s big board, making him a probable first-round pick. In his scouting report on Thomas, ESPN’s Jonathan Givony notes that the 6-4 shooting guard is a talented scorer but can be indifferent at times on defense, especially off the ball.
Weiskamp is coming off a junior season in which he averaged 14.8 PPG and 6.6 RPG with an impressive .462 3PT% in 31 games (29.3 MPG). If he keeps his name in the draft after testing the waters, he’ll be one of the top outside shooters available.
