Elijah Thomas’ short career with the Clemson Tigers basketball program has proven to be quite memorable.
After three seasons, the 6-foot-9, 245-pound forward leaves the program as one of just nine players in team history to register at least 700 points, 450 rebounds and 125 blocks, according to the school’s website. He also stands at No. 10 in program history in blocks with 176.
As a senior, Thomas averaged 13 points and eight rebounds for the 20-14 Tigers, who advanced to the second round of the NIT. On the year, the Lancaster High grad registered nine doubles-doubles, including a season-high 25 points and 14 rebounds in a 78-51 win over Charleston Southern.
Thomas transferred to Clemson after spending his first collegiate season at Texas A&M, where he averaged 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds.
A consensus Top 50 prospect coming out of Lancaster, Thomas was rated the No.31 prospect in the country and No. 2 in Texas by ESPN.
