St. Thomas gets another 4-star (out recruiting KU this time). St. Thomas will be a contender in the Summit VERY quickly.

Must have really good recruiters. Have to think they are going after devout Catholic kids. Also not a lot of competition if players want to stay local.

They must think that they're going to be playing at St. Thomas... of the Virgin Islands.  It will be a rude awakening when they arrive in Minnesota! 😎

They are blessed!  St. Thomas only has the the Gophers as a D1 rival for the high school stars in their state and they cannot all go to the Big U of M.  The state of Minnesota has had a lot of really good ball players in the last few years, including the number one player Chet Holmgren. Starting in year two St. Thomas will be a handful in the Summit League.

According to this story, St. Thomas will be eligible for NCAA championships in the 2026-27 school year. So they will not participate in Summit League post season tournaments until then

Do they compete in conference tournaments then? What happens if they win the Summit tourney and then can represent in the NCAA tourney?

No, they won’t participate in any Summit post season tournaments that result in a NCAA berth until 2026-27

Sorry - it looked like the article was behind a paywall when I first clicked on it. Reading now.

So these 4 star guys are committing with the knowledge that the best they can hope for in terms of a post season is the CBI or CIT tournies? They must have some unreal recruiting talent on that staff.

Agreed. Or maybe they didn’t tell them….🤔

There absolutely are some deep pocket donors at St. Thomas.  Lots of $ floating around the Twin Cities and the “Tommies.”
