Isiah Thomas' first recruiting class at Florida International already appears to be the best in school history.

Thomas got three players to sign letters of intent Wednesday, including 6-foot-8 forward Dominique Ferguson _ who originally committed to Kentucky and was ranked among the nation's top 50 prospects by multiple recruiting services.

Thomas called it "a special day."

DeJuan Wright, a 6-foot-4 guard who will transfer in from Gillette (Wyo.) Junior College, also signed. So did 6-foot-3 guard Richaud Pack of Birmingham, Mich.

Wright committed to FIU on the day Thomas was hired.

All three players will be eligible next season for FIU.
