BANGOR, Maine - The Husson University men's basketball program continued to recruit late into the summer and recently received a commitment from J Braxton Thomas. Thomas is a 6-2 guard who played one year at Washington County CC in Wisconsin.
"J is a very good shooting guard and plays with a lot of maturity," says head coach Warren Caruso. "J had a great year at WCCC and will give us additional depth at the wing position."
Thomas played at Bradley Barbonnais High School (IL) before going to WCCC. He averaged 12.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game in the 2017-18 season at WCCC. Thomas was the second leading scorer helping WCCC to 21-1 record and 16-0 in conference play. He started 17 games shooting 43.5% from the field, 76.7% from the free throw line, and 40% from the three. He led the team in three point shooting percentage, makes, and attempts (58-145).
Thomas joins Jared Balser (Mt. Ararat HS), Scott Lewis (So. Portland HS), Luke Martin (Ponte Vedra HS), Derick Collin (MDI HS), KJ Seals (Trevecca Nararene College) in this year's recruiting class.
