After a brief respite from the recruiting grind while the Cavaliers were in Italy, Tony Bennett and the Virginia coaching staff are back in the hunt on the recruiting trail. UVA has extended its sixth offer in the recruiting class of 2024 to Dedan ‘DJ’ Thomas, a four-star point guard from Henderson, Nevada, Thomas announced on Twitter on Friday.
Thomas has collected an impressive list of offers early in the 2024 recruiting cycle. He has been offered by a number of top programs on the West Coast, including Arizona, Gonzaga, UCLA, USC, Stanford, UNLV, California, and Washington State as well as a few other major conference schools like Florida, Houston, LSU, and Miami.
