NC State basketball recruiting announced in November that it had signed a pair of prospects on the first day of the fall signing period: center Shawn Phillips Jr. from Dream City Christian in Glendale, Ariz., and guard LJ Thomas from Bull City Prep in Durham, N.C.
Thomas, who checks in at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, had a final six that included an option to play for Overtime Elite in addition to Georgia, Houston, Memphis and Ole Miss before committing to the Wolfpack in October.
Last year, Thomas averaged 18.5 points, 4.2 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game while shooting 44 percent from the field for Bull City Prep near Durham, N.C.
Before that, he played at Camp Jewell House Academy in Conyers, Ga. Thomas started his high school career at Columbia High in Decatur, Ga., where he averaged 18.0 points and 3.2 assists per game and made 42 percent of his threes in 2018-19.
