After seeing his recruitment explode this past Spring, Quaker Valley standout guard Adou Thiero has finally made his long-awaited decision, choosing Kentucky as his future home.
Thiero, a 6-foot-5 guard, averaged over 23 points and ten rebounds per game this season for the Quakers, leading them to a WPIAL Class 4A title. In that championship performance, he finished with a remarkable 31 points, 17 rebounds, seven blocks, and 14 drawn fouls. Thiero then went on to take the Quakers all the way to a runner-up finish in the PIAA State Tournament.

He entered the high school season with just one Division I offer, but finished with a handful, many of which from high major programs. He then visited Duquesne, Pitt, Cincinnati, Maryland, Xavier, and Kentucky before deciding to commit to John Calipari’s Wildcats.
“I was definitely very excited,” he told Pittsburgh Sports Now after first hearing from Calipari. “Kentucky was my dream school when I was a kid. I went to a Kentucky camp my freshman year and I just like the program and Coach Cal is a very good coach.”
Thiero’s father, Almamy, played for Calipari at Memphis before transferring to Duquesne for his last year of college hoops.

“His drive and fire probably outweigh his skill set, which is saying a lot because his skill set is extremely high,” his high school coach said about Thiero. “But his drive and his will is off the charts for a high school guy.”
