Micah Thomas has found his college home.

The Oklahoman’s Super 5 Player of the Year, Thomas signed with Texas State, the school announced via Twitter on Thursday. He joins Edmond Memorial’s Drew Tennial, a member of The Oklahoman’s Big All-City first team, in the 2019 class.

Thomas signed with Southern Illinois-Edwardsville in November but requested and was granted his release after a coaching change, he announced March 21.

Thomas guided Putnam North to the playoffs despite a 14-13 record. After winning a Class 6A state title his junior year, he and the Panthers fell in the state title game to Tulsa Washington this season. Thomas averaged more than 30 points per game as a senior and scored 44 in the state semifinals against top-seeded Edmond Memorial.

Along with Tennial, Thomas will join The Oklahoman’s 2018 Super 5 Player of the Year Mason Harrell in San Marcos. Additionally, the Bobcats recently extended coach Danny Kaspar’s contract through the 2022-23 season. Texas State went 24-10 during the 2018-19 season.
