The Thon Maker recruiting saga has taken another unexpected turn.

Five-star center Thon Maker will not be joining the Class of 2015.

While playing at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, Maker told reports he's no longer trying to reclassify into the 2015 class, and will instead remain in the 2016 cycle and plans to play college basketball next year. Maker was once recruited by Kentucky heavily, but John Calipari appeared to grow tired of waiting to see if Maker would play this year, telling him, "when you’re ready to be recruited, call me."

It's unclear if Cal will now pursue Maker as a 2016 recruit, but it will certainly be worth watching as the summer goes on.
