Even before starting his playing days at Ohio State, Bishop Luers senior Deshaun Thomas could return to the school to play basketball.
Ohio State will be playing host to the McDonald's All-American game March 31.
Thomas, with his pursuit of Damon Bailey as the all-time leading scorer in state history, has a good chance of being among the All-Americans and return to the Value City Arena to battle the best of the best.
Two of Thomas' opponents in Saturday's Play-by-Play Classic, played at Ohio State, also have a good chance to be All-Americans -- Columbus Northland's Jared Sullinger and J.D. Weatherspoon.
Thomas was named a Parade All-American last year.
