Rob Jeter on Donald Thomas
"Donald is a true wing who is really starting to grow into his body. He is already a very good player and he has the potential to get a lot better. He shoots the ball well and his track background shows what a great athlete is he. He also has great leadership qualities and it's exciting to add him to our group."
