Adou Thiero, a 6-foot-5 combo guard, was the final piece to Kentucky’s 2022 recruiting class. He signed with the Wildcats earlier this month, becoming the third member of the class via the high school route.
“Ever since I went to my first Kentucky men’s basketball camp I’ve wanted to go to Kentucky,” Thiero said. “My whole life I’ve been working to get here and when I got this opportunity, I knew I was going to take it because I just liked how Coach Cal is able to develop guys into pro players. He has always been great to his players and my dad played for him, so he had great things to say about him. I know Coach Cal and the staff will be able to help me get to where I want to be. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I can’t wait to get on campus and work to improve my game and help make this team better.”
Thiero averaged 23.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 3.9 steals, and 2.3 blocks per game for Quaker Valley as a senior, where he was one of the top players in the state of Pennsylvania. He finished his career with 1,624 career points, ranking the third-most in team history.
