Luke Thomas, shooting guard from High Point Central to Greensboro Day School for the upcoming season. Thomas can knock down the threes and didn’t seem to blend in well with High Point Central’s chaotic run-and-gun system.
Thomas will have the option to re-class at Greensboro Day and if he chooses to do so, that will make him a junior for the 2009/2010 school-year instead of a senior. I spoke to GDS head basketball coach/Athletic Director Freddy Johnson earlier today and Coach Johnson said he feels that Thomas will fit in fine in the Bengals’ system.
Coach Johnson said that Thomas was enrolled at GDS for the upcoming school year, but Coach Johnson said he had heard nothing at all about the rumor that came our way yesterday saying that Eastern Guilford’s big-man Quayshad Williams was heading to Greensboro Day School.
Quayshad is in the 6’8 to 6’9 range now and the word on the street Monday was that he would be at Greensboro Day this fall, but Coach Johnson said, not to his knowledge, and that Quayshad had not enrolled at GDS for 2009/2010.
The private schools may get busy later on this week and as we head to the first part of August. There is still supposed to be a blockbuster laying out in the Street that will have a major impact on the Guilford County Schools athletics and we may have that out in the open by the end of the week.
If the Guilford County Schools are going to pay Oak Ridge Military Academy $27,000.00 per month to lease space at ORMA for the use of the evacuated Oak Ridge Elementary School after the severe mold issues, then Oak Ridge Military would have funds to not only hire coach Stan Kowalewski, but they might now have the dollars/bucks/funds to hire a completely new coaching staff for all sports and take it to the Streets.
Stay tuned, ORMA says they will be making major decisions about private matters regarding their 2009/2010 general policies in relation to corporal punishment with or without their top-ranking lieutenant this Wednesday.
To take this out of the military motiff, big talks coming down at Oak Ridge on Wednesday and don’t rule out Jay Canty at ORMA. He is back in the area after speding only one week out in Kansas…….
Again, Jay Canty, from CP3 All-Stars(Summer 2009) and formerly of Ragsdale HS is back, and he is still looking for a home for 2009/2010 and his only option may be the private route and Oak Ridge would be a good fit if ORMA can get all of their details worked out this week.
