Quintrell Thomas to decide today? (UPDATED)

Quintrell Thomas is still taking his time, according to his former New Jersey Elite AAU coach Derrick Bobbitt.

"We've spoken and he's still taking time making his decision," Bobbitt said Wednesday afternoon.

Bobbitt said on Tuesday that he was awaiting a potential news on a decision from the Kansas transfer yesterday, but Thomas is still mulling his options.

The St. Patrick High product averaged 1.5 points and 2 rebounds last season for the Jayhawks in a limited role. His upcoming decision is between UNLV -- who was hot on his trails as a prep -- St. Joe's and Siena.


Former Kansas forward Quintrell Thomas, who visited UNLV more than a week ago in his quest for a new hoops home, could be making his choice known as early as Tuesday, according to his former AAU coach.

The coach, Derrick Bobbitt, was quoted via text on, saying on Monday that Thomas's decision should come "in the next day or so."

Thomas, who averaged 1.5 points and 2 rebounds in limited duty for the Jayhawks as a freshman, visited St. Joseph's first. This past weekend, following his trip to Las Vegas, he visited Siena's campus in Albany, N.Y.

Originally from New Jersey, the former St. Patrick High standout was recruited as a prep by UNLV -- most notably by assistant coach Lew Hill.

Since his visit to Las Vegas, multiple attempts to reach Thomas on his cell phone have gone unanswered.
