UNLV announces Thomas transfer

July 8, 2009


UNLV on Tuesday officially announced the arrival of Quintrell Thomas, a transfer from Kansas University.

Thomas, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound forward who has enrolled in classes at UNLV, will have to sit out the 2009-10 season because of NCAA transfer rules and will be eligible to play for the Runnin’ Rebels as a sophomore in 2010-11.

“Quintrell is an athletic big man and we are excited to have him as part of our program,” Rebels’ coach Lon Kruger said. “He will make us better next year as our guys work against him in practice every day, and, of course, when he does have a chance to play, he has the ability to be a difference-maker.”

Do you have his reason behind the transfer?

"Do you have his reason behind the transfer?"

Xavier Henry, Thomas Robinson and the Morris twins.

Lawrence wishes you the best Quintrell

He would have had even less playing time this year than last year and he basically had no playing time last year.

Wish you luck Quintrell!

Give it hell, Quintrell. Hope to see you in The Big Show, come March, 2011. I sure enjoyed watching you play ball at KU; you are good.

Lon Kruger has done a great job of rebuilding UNLV's basketball program AND their badly tarnished reputation. It's great to see a nice guy from Kansas achieve the level of success that he has.

Good luck "Q" and I wish you the best unless the Rebs end up playing KU in post season. Thanks for your time and effort at KU.
