Chris Thomas, a five-star Junior College prospect by way of Colorado, commited and signed with Manhattan.

Chris Thomas has found his college home.

In late September, Thomas, a five-star recruit out of Chipola Junior College, decommitted from Xavier. Now the 6-foot-5 scorer has settled on his school -- Manhattan.

Thomas committed to Steve Masiello and his staff late Tuesday night.

“Chris decided to sign with Manhattan,” Chipola coach Patrick Blake told

Blake said a key relationship with a Manhattan assistant played a major role in Thomas’ decision to be a Jasper.

“Chris is a loyal kid and coach [Rasheen] Davis has always been there for him since day one,” Blake said. “Manhattan started recruiting him again and I think that relationship with coach Davis really stood out.”

“He met with coach Masiello and they hit it off right off the bat and he felt really comfortable with the staff,” Blake added. “He really likes the way coach Mas develops his players and his style of play.

Davis, who is in his first year at Manhattan, was the lead man on the Thomas recruitment. He’s a former Xavier assistant and was the coach that headed up his recruitment when he was a Xavier pledge.

Thomas joins Tyler Wilson to make up Manhattan's current two-man 2013 recruiting class.
