Centennial junior guard Jade Thomas commits to UNLV

Centennial junior guard Jade Thomas will play college basketball at UNLV, she announced Tuesday via Twitter.

Her commitment is non-binding and won’t be official until she signs a national letter of intent as a senior.

Thomas joins teammate Melanie Isbell as local UNLV recruits. Former Bulldogs guard Justice Ethridge is a freshman for the Lady Rebels and Thomas’ sister, Bailey, is a redshirt sophomore after beginning her career at West Virginia.

The younger Thomas helped Centennial win its fourth consecutive Class 4A state championship in February by forcing overtime with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer in the championship game against Liberty.

She also had scholarship offers from Montana State, Northern Colorado and San Jose State.
