Chris Thomas transfers from Princeton Day to Arizona
Chris Thomas, the star sophomore guard who played this season for Princeton Day, has transferred to Westwind Preparatory School in Phoenix, Westwind Principal Kris Johnson confirmed Wednesday afternoon.
Thomas, who is 6 feet 6 and originally from Denver, is rated the nation's top player in his class by scout.com. He will not be able to play for Westwind this season, though. Johnson said her teams' seasons are complete.
Westwind, a public charter school whose enrollment includes boarding students, fields two teams, a prep team with top high school players and post-graduates, and a traditional high school team.
The high school team "won the state championship last weekend. Without him," Johnson said. "Ask me if he's any good, because I don't have any clue.
"His grandfather had been investigating us is what he told us. He has an uncle here. It's close enough to his home and not as far as Maryland and because his uncle lives down here, he feels safe."
