A relationship forged years ago on the recruiting trail played a part in Marshall's latest addition to its men's basketball program.
Johnny Thomas, a 6-foot-6 wing player from North Carolina State, said Tuesday he's going to play his final two seasons with the Herd. Thomas is a graduate transfer and will be eligible immediately.
NC State’s Johnny Thomas is on pace to earn his undergraduate degree from NC State this summer, and will not return to the men’s basketball team for the upcoming 2010-11 season. Thomas will be graduating in just over three years, and will pursue other opportunities in both a masters program and to play basketball at another school to be determined.
