All-Nebraska forward Saint Thomas of Millard North will sign with Loyola-Chicago, he announced Tuesday.
Thomas, a 6-foot-7 senior, averaged 21.4 points a game while leading the state champion Mustangs in rebounds and assists. He finished as a 1,000-point scorer in only two years as a starter.
Pepperdine and Murray State were other schools he strongly considered.
Loyola has been coached by ex-Creighton player Porter Moser, but he left the Ramblers to be Oklahoma’s next coach. Drew Valentine was promoted from Moser’s staff as his replacement.
