Diamond Thomas is a young lady we have been raving about since last year. She hurts you with her relentless defense that leads to many of her uncontested layup points. She once again caught our eye in a loaded SE All-Freshman Invitational field. Diamond found ways to get her teammates easy scoring opportunities by dropping some pretty smooth dimes. She also showed she’s a scorer and did so in transition and the half-court set. With a quick first step, a knockdown jumper, and Diamond’s high energy style of play, defenders found it hard to contain her. Knightdale has a gem that has tremendous potential and will be a significant contributor in her HS career.
