    Maker will take his time in recruiting process..............Thon Maker struggled at Mustang Madness, but the sophomore has plenty of time to hone his game -- and to think recruiting.

    Maker begins focusing on recruitment................It's early in the process, but Class of 2016 five-star Thon Maker is beginning to think about prospective future teammates.

    Maker makes a mark




    If you haven't had an opportunity to see Thon Maker play in person, you're missing out on a treat. The five-star, No. 3 overall player in the Class of 2016 is as advertised -- a long and athletic big man that is equally impressive running the floor and finishing on an array of moves, as he is facing the basket and stroking jumpers to the three-point line. Despite his lanky frame, he also battled hard on the boards, often toe-to-toe with bulkier or wide body post men.
    Maker plays for Team Loaded, Va., and attends Carlisle school in Martinsville, Va. While he defers recruiting questions to his guardian Edward Smith, the rising junior does have an idea of the things that will be important to him when he gets closer to making a college choice.

    "It has to be a fitting environment, the school has to fit you," Maker said. "Also what you're about to study there and style of play. I'm not going to go up against a big 300-pound guy. I'm going to make him move, make him run. Make the defense have to get a switch on me and then if they get a guard on me post up on him, shoot over him, or back him down or something like that."

    Smith said Florida recently offered and he is in steady contact with Duke, Kansas, Virginia, Kentucky and Louisville.

    Between the travel circuit and camps, it will be an extremely busy summer for the Sudan native, but Maker said he'll find time to work on the things he knows he wants to improve on.

    "Definitely getting stronger and taking care of the ball, working on my shot," Maker said. "From the elbows basically just being automatic knockdown from there. I'm working on the post a little bit on the lower block, making quick moves not just waiting for the defense to settle."
