LeBron Thomas of Bishopville, a rising South Carolina basketball prospect

June 30, 2019

 LeBron Thomas played varsity basketball as a freshman. He’s had a breakout summer on the AAU circuit. He’s already receiving letters from Power 5 schools.

LeBron Thomas, a rising sophomore at Lee Central High School and one of the state’s top prospects in the 2022 class.

Thomas last week wore No. 22 — not 6 or 23, digits associated with the LeBron of 15 all-star games and three NBA championships — as he guided the Stallions during play in an NCAA-certified South Carolina recruiting event at Richland Northeast High School. The 15-year-old is a 6-foot-2 point guard — projected to grow to 6-5 — who finds joy in teammate involvement. He’s pass-first, but can score at any moment.

“The sky’s the limit with LeBron,” said Lee Central coach Xavier Harry. “His IQ at that age, you don’t see that a lot. His IQ coming in, as a ninth grader working with us in the summer, his vision, his IQ, some of the things he did with the ball, we knew he was going to be a special player.”

Thomas averaged nearly 12 points per game as a Lee Central freshman. He was paired in the backcourt with DaVeon Thomas, a rising junior who was recently offered by Presbyterian. In late April, while participating on the AAU circuit for Florence International, Thomas averaged a near triple-double — 27.8 points, 10 rebounds, 8.5 assists — over four games at a Phenom Hoops event.

“It was a good weekend,” Thomas said. “I was mostly focused on my team. I was with my team that day. I know I can get out there myself, but I wanted my team out there exposed.”

The state of South Carolina is on a good run when it comes to producing elite prospects. Dalzell’s Ja Morant (2017 class) and Spartanburg’s Zion Williamson (2018) just went 1-2 in the NBA Draft, Charleston’s Josiah James (2019) is a reigning McDonald’s All-American headed to Tennessee and rising Dorman seniors P.J. Hall and Myles Tate are ranked among the country’s top 105 players in the 2020 class. Greenville’s John Butler are Piedmont’s Bryce McGowens — couple Gamecock targets — both have four-star ratings in the 2021 class.

Can he shoot? He looks fearless on the court and with his dribble but I can't find any highlights of his outside shot, God Bless you and wish your sons nothing but success!
