Thomas gets some props

Husky recruits Isaiah Thomas and Elston Turner Jr. each played at the new Reebok camp the last few days (it was previously the ABCD camp) with both drawing some raves for their play.
Here’s an assessment of each player from NBADraft.net rating Thomas as the No. 10 player at the camp and saying that he was more efficient as a guard than Brandon Jennings, who is generally acclaimed as the top guard in the Class of 2008.
Looks like there could be some real fun UW-Arizona (where Jennings is headed) matchups in the future.
In fact, it seems really interesting that Thomas is called “not as flashy” as Jennings, since flash seemed to be what much of Thomas’ game was about while he was at Curtis. Seems as if he’s becoming a more mature player, which would jibe with the reports of what’s been happening off the court, as well.
Turner is rated as “just missing the cut” of the top 20 players, though complimented for his scoring ability.
Here’s some background on the tournament itself from USA Today.
Both Thomas and Turner are expected to sign with UW in the fall as part of the Class of 2008.
