Buckhorn's Nylan Thomas signs with UAH Men's Basketball

Three-year starter Nylan Thomas helped the Bucks' achieve the first school to win four consecutive 20+ win seasons.

MADISON COUNTY, ALABAMA, Ala. — Friday evening, Buckhorn standout Nylan Thomas signed to play basketball at the next level. The 3-year starter signed his letter of intent to play in town at the University of Alabama-Huntsville. 

Today he was surrounded by friends and family to help celebrate the occasion. Buck's head basketball coach Mark Blevins, also was in attendance and gifted Thomas with a basketball and jersey. 

The upcoming Charger said he's most excited about making a stamp in the program like the guys he used to watch did. 

"I watched Max [Shulman] play, he's a great shooter and never misses. I also watched highlights of Auston Leslie who went to Westminster Christian and he can jump out the gym, probably higher than anyone I've ever seen," Thomas said.
