Deshaun Thomas (born 1991) is an American college basketball player for the Ohio State University Buckeyes men's basketball team. He graduated from high school as a highly-regarded five-star player who verbally committed to play for the Buckeyes when he was still a high school freshman. Thomas was also recruited by in-state powers Indiana University and Purdue University. As a junior on November 11, 2008, Thomas formalized his decision by signing a letter of intent with the Buckeyes. With a love for the game that matches his tremendous talents, Thomas hopes one day to attain his dreams of playing in the NBA. Even as a young man, the basketball prospects of Thomas were apparent to those who knew him. As a 5th-grade student at Northcrest Elementary School in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Thomas's height had already surpassed many of his teachers.
