Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell is on the board with his first commitment for the 2024 class. 6-9 Dallas Thomas of Little Rock, AR Monday announced a commitment to the Tigers. He chose Clemson over Missouri, Memphis, Arkansas and LSU.
Thomas made his official visit to Clemson in June after several months of intense recruiting by assistant coach Sean Dixon.
“They’ve been telling me how they love my game and how I’ll fit in their system perfectly. They have a great program and I’ve been watching them since I was young,” Thomas said earlier this year. “The biggest factor for me is development. I want to go somewhere that can develop me into a pro and take my game to the next level because that is my main goal. I’m also looking for a school that has a great brotherhood and family bond. I feel like being in that type of environment would help me grow and flourish on and off the court.”
Thomas got that feeling from Clemson after meeting with Brownell on his visits and watching how things work inside his program.
“Just telling me how he feels like I fit in his program on and off the court,” Thomas said in June. “Also, the relationship I’ve built with some of the players up there really quick. They showed me a video of Hunter Tyson, and they were saying how I would have that type of role in their program, knock down shots, use my length to finish around the basket.”
Based on the current roster, Brownell will have at least four more scholarships available for the 2024 class
