Big Dre is shrinking

So I was sitting in the basketball office today speaking with Dan Dakich — an update on him will appear in tomorrow’s paper — when DeAndre Thomas strolled in. The JUCO transfer from Chipola, who arrived weighing 350 pounds, has trimmed down. He’s noticeably smaller.

Earlier this summer D.J. White — whose Pan Am team begins play tonight — said no one has worked as hard as Thomas this summer. Assuming Dre stays at this level (as if Kelvin Sampson and Jeff Watkinson would let him do anything but), Thomas seems sure to be at a manageable playing weight — which for him is somewhere in the 270-290 range — by the beginning of the season.


  1. I seen “Big Dre” and DJ white out jogging earlier this year. I myself an a very big guy, and this guy was a monster! He looked like a offensive lineman and not a basketball player.
