JT Thor reclassifies into the 2020 class

JT Thor, a five-star prospect, has made the decision to reclassify into the 2020 class, a source has confirmed with Rivals.com. A 6-foot-9 forward that his valued for his versatility, Thor will also transfer into Norcross High School (Georgia) for what will now be his senior season.

One of the more talented and versatile forward prospects in the 2020 class, Thor has taken visits to Kansas, Maryland, Miami and New Mexico in recent months.

No clear favorite has emerged within his recruitment but now that he has sped up his college clock by a full year, the attention that he will garner will be ramped up another few levels thanks to his talent level, the dearth of forwards built in his mold and multi-positional ballplay.

Standing close to 6-foot-9 and with great length and offensive abilities, Thor is someone that fits the modern game to a tee. He can create his own shot to the perimeter, is an underrated playmaker out of the high post and can defend more than just one position.

The plan is for Thor to release his final school list by the end of August. From there, a commitment is expected in October with a signing in November. Oregon is likely the next to host him within the coming weeks.

Arizona, Florida, Kansas, Maryland and Oklahoma State are among his offers thus far. Kentucky has also remained in touch and hosted Thor twice within the past 12 months; another visit is expected to be taken to Lexington this fall.
