Meet Blanca Thomas, the post player top college coaches flock to see (HighSchoolOT, 1/25/2023)
Beyond this year, Thomas said she wants to take some official visits before picking a school, but there is no timeline and there is no rush.
“I’m not really rushing the decision since it’s such an important choice and it’s going to be one of the biggest things in my life,” Thomas said. “This is my future, so I’m just waiting it out to see what speaks to me.”

Thomas said she felt comfortable in the post last season, but that’s not enough. She wants to become more than a one-dimensional player.
“I wanted to become more of an inside/outside player,’’ Thomas said. “I wanted to be able to step outside a little bit and score off the dribble.’’
Indications are Thomas has improved significantly since last season.
“That’s all that we’ve worked on all summer,’’ [Thomas’s trainer Randall] Clark said.
