How Orangeville Prep’s Thon Maker is Keeping His Head in the Game
One-on-One with Orangeville Prep’s Thon Maker
He might be the most sought after recruit of the 2015 class, but Thon Maker still keeps his head in the game.
Maker has been making a lot of news recently. First, it was his announcement to reclassify to graduate for 2015 back in February.
Once the announcement was made, multiple NCAA schools turned up the heat on recruiting both him and his brother Matur, including powerhouses like Indiana (which he visited in early March), Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, and Missouri just to name a few.
To add on to that, Basketball Canada Executive VP Rowan Barrett even made his organization’s interests known to bring in the Maker brothers to the Canadian national team, should they be interested in changing their citizenship from Australian.
But despite all the hype and interest Thon Maker is gaining, you would never assume that much is really on his mind other than getting better on the basketball court.
It’s a smart decision to make, considering the seven-foot centre that is currently playing for the Athlete Institute’s Orangeville Prep Academy team, is gearing up for the two biggest showcases of his career.
