Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said. "That still boggles my mind because based on what I've seen on tape, that kid's as good as anybody in our league. He shoots the ball well. He handles it well. He passes it well. He blocks shots better than maybe anybody I've ever seen in this league. "He rebounds it great. There's just nothing he can't do, and to think that he's only a freshman is just incredible. He's been the most impactful defensive player just because of his shot blocking and defensive rebounding. I would say that Tyrus Thomas is the most intimidating, impactful defensive player that I've seen in our league." TT DMitch and Baby.
