Sometimes a bit of news needs no further comment from me. This is one of those times:
Illinois Prep Bulls-eye has learned that although 6'7 manchild DeAndre Thomas did achieve a qualifying test score on his ACT exam, he fell short with respect to meeting core requirements and as a result will be ineligible to play as a freshman next season at the University of Missouri. Rumors have surfaced that Thomas' destination next season could be the newly formed Boys To Men Math and English Academy in Chicago, which will be coached by Loren Jackson, the former coach at Chicago's Julian High School. However, at the present time nothing is concrete and there has been no official announcement.
