Adonis Thomas to play at University of Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Nearly every college basketball program in the country wanted him, but Melrose High School star Adonis Thomas picked the University of Memphis Thursday.

Thomas made his official announcement on ESPNU.  He chose the hometown Tigers over Tennessee, Arkansas, Florida and UCLA.

Thomas later repeated his announcement before a packed and excited crowd at the Melrose High Gym.

Thomas was the top target for the Tigers during the recruiting process.  As a junior, the 6'6" forward helped lead the Melrose Golden Wildcats to the Tennessee Class AAA State Championship last season.
