On Wednesday, Pitt extended an offer to another one of the best local prospects that Western Pennsylvania has seen in years, Meleek Thomas.
Class of 2025 6’3 Guard Meleek Thomas will be the NEXT STAR out of Pittsburgh, PA. @ThomasMeleek is a natural scorer, finishes through contact, defends with incredible energy, makes the correct reads, crafty passer & GIFTED playmaker. @NY_Lightning @DushawnLondon1 @BJenkins247

Thomas is a 6-foot-3 wing prospect from North Hills who has a very smooth style of play, featuring soft touch around the basket on floaters and his jump-shot along with calmness and confidence in his ball-handling abilities. While he is still just a freshman, the youngster already holds offers from Pitt and St. Johns.
Thomas joins Alier Maluk and Darryn Peterson as the only other players in the class of 2025 that have picked up offers from head coach Jeff Capel and Pitt.
