Vanderbilt’s 2020 recruiting class is complete.
We had thought that Vanderbilt basketball’s 2020 recruiting class was complete in April, with the additions of Akeem Odusipe and Tyrin Lawrence to a class that already included November signee Myles Stute. But on Saturday, Vanderbilt added the commitment of Trevon Thomas, a 5’11”, 160-pound point guard prospect out of Crestwood Prep in Toronto.
So, we’re not going to spin this: Thomas is unrated in the 247 Sports composite and rated as a two-star recruit by Rivals. Neither site indicates that Thomas had any competing scholarship offers (though, of course, we have no idea how accurate that is.) But at this stage, the other option was to have the scholarship go unused in the 2020-21 basketball season (assuming, of course, there is a basketball season), and there’s probably some use in simply having an additional body on the roster instead of going the Bryce Drew route and intentionally being under the scholarship limit year after year.
Here, I’ll just let you watch a highlight tape.
