Texas A&M just positioned themselves to keep 2022 TACA Storm (TX) guard Jason Thirdkill Jr. home. A&M recently offered him a scholarship joining TCU and UT Arlington.
“It’s a good relationship,” he said of A&M. “They’re very genuine and make me feel welcomed.”
Houston, Sam Houston State, Denver, East Carolina and Baylor are also showing interest. They have paid very close attention to his progression and he’s improved a lot. It can all be traced back to his work ethic.
That’s something coaches have really keyed in on when referencing Thirdkill but he’s really a player that can do a little bit of everything and has a game that is appealing to many college coaches at the Division I level.
“Playing really hard, impacing the game with my energy and being able to lock down a teams best player and still be effective on the offensive end,” he said of what he does well on the floor. “I’m very good in transition and my catch and shoot is pretty good. I have a quick first step so I can get to the basket and make a play.”
Thirdkill is still wide open in his recruitment and is focused on improving his game. He’s working on both the physical and mental aspect of basketball, which should help him earn more scholarship offers in the future.
“You know, just always in the gym, watching film on players that are known that I will go against so I can prepare,” Thirdkill Jr. explained. “Lifting everyday, just pushing myself to greatness and also taking care of my body like going to cryo, stretching and all of that.”
