James Thomas, a 6-5, 210-pound power forward from Navarro College, has signed a letter-of-intent to attend Sam Houston State University and play men's basketball for head coach Jason Hooten.

Thomas earned third-team All-Conference honors, leading Navarro to a 25-11 record, the NJCAA Region XIV tournament and a berth in the national championships in Hutchinson, Kan, in 2012.

The Duncanville product averaged 9.1 points and 6.3 rebounds. He hit 47 percent from the field and was a huge part of the team's post-season success.

In the NJCAA national tournament, he put together back-to-back performances of double figure points and rebounds (12 points and 10 rebounds in the first and 17 points and 13 boards the second night).

While leading his team to the regional title, Thomas totaled 19 points and 10 rebounds in a 94-89 win at Temple and a 12 points and 13 boards in a 71-60 victory over Lon Morris.

"James is an over-achiever," Hooten said. "He loves when people say he can't do something. A tough, physical, hard-nosed play, he plays the power forward spot with a junk-yard dog mentality. We are extremely excited to add a young man of his character, work ethic and winning pedigree. James will make everyone around him better and accountable on a daily basis."
