A couple months ago and not many people were talking about Thomas leaving. Now a lot of Buckeye fans are scare he will be gone.
Thomas strengths are his mid range game. He is automatic there, knows how to get open, and knows how to score. He can shoot from the outsides also. Great offense rebounder, always finds way to get the ball and put it back in. He is an elite scorer in college.
He is 6'7 SF. Needs to improve his defense and lateral quickness for sure. But if you want a pure scorer, Thomas is the best at it.

Most Impressive Offensive Player in NCAA: Deshaun Thomas, Ohio State. The lefty has scored 89 points (22.5 ppg) and has been tough to cover.
Funny how a player can get buried by the early season hype of others.
Wonder if T.O. can make a move for a 2nd pick.
