Tide lands four-star Thomas

Adonis Thomas has long been a priority for Alabama, even during his commitment to the Florida Gators, and it paid off on Monday when the four-star pulled the trigger to Nick Saban and Kirby Smart during an in-home visit.

Upon committing to the Florida Gators on August 1, it was known that Alabama's late push for Adonis Thomas was nearly enough to snag his commitment despite the Crimson Tide only surging late against longtime favorite Florida.

The 6-foot-3, 219-pounder "struggled" with that original decision, per Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett High School coach Todd Wofford. But on that very day, UA assistant Kirby Smart let the Scout 300 prospect know that the Crimson Tide's recruiting effort would not slow for him.

Ultimately, the relentless pursuit paid off and the decsion was made on Monday with Smart and head coach Nick Saban visiting the Atlanta-area prospect just two days after claiming the SEC title.

"You can trace it all the way to when Coach Smart told him when he committed to Florida that he was not going to stop recruiting him and was going to recruit him all the way to the end and he did," Wofford said. "When he took that visit over for the Mississippi State game he came back and he was blown away, not just with the conversation with the coaches and interaction with the players, but he was blown away with the player interaction with the fans and how it was so electric. He was blown away with the sense of urgency they treated him with at such a big game. He had so much time to speak with Coach Saban and Coach Smart and hanging out with the players.

"Then he went back a couple of weeks ago when they played Western Carolina. It was a low-key game, but the same thing. Obviously the facilities and all that stuff are A-1, but he just likes the relationship he's built with Coach Saban and Coach Smart on a personal level. He has a couple of guys that he has connected with on the team at the linebacker position. At the same time it doesn't hurt that I coached Blake (Sims) back in high school and he's given him a lot of advice and ins and outs of Alabama from someone who has waited his time, but is a quote, unquote star now."

The moment Thomas backed off of his Florida pledge in late October, Wofford began thinking Alabama would eventually snag his commitment.

"I knew they were in the driver's seat when he decommitted," he said. "It was down to Alabama and Florida and at the time he was struggling with his commitment to Florida. He took a while just going back and forth with those two when he decided on Florida. You would figure they would be the favorite after that."

Alabama was, and envisions him as a versatile linebacker within its scheme.

"I think he can impact just for the fact that you're talking about a kid in high school that his 6-4, 220 pounds and can run a 4.5 (40-yard dash)," Wofford said. "He goes to college and gets on their meal program and lifting program, he'll be a kid that is 240 and can run. Even if he slows down to a 4.6 that's a lot of man running around out there. I think he'll continue to grow as an inside linebacker and with his athleticism and speed he could do a lot of different things for them over there.

"The biggest thing to work on, I tell him and I tell any kid right now lift as much as possible and run as much of possible so that you're physically ready. Once you get a playbook soak up as much as possible, visit as much as possible to bounce stuff off the other linebackers to kind of get some kind of idea what they want you to do. The biggest thing is to be physically ready."

The Black Knights' coach also admits that he doesn't have to bend the truth when speaking of the four-star prospect's character.

"If this was another kid I would possibly have to make up some other traits, but he is genuinely a good kid," Wofford said. "A lot of this recruiting stuff has been hard on him because he's such a good kid it's hard for him to tell some of these guys no that put a lot of time and work into him. He's a great kid and very academic as far as schoolwork goes. His teammates love him. It's not just about him. He's always made his teammates a part of this whole process. He's not an ego kid or a me kid, which a lot of times happens these days because of the media attention and that kind of stuff.

"He's just one that just wants to go about his business and do his work and wants to get better at what he does. He's a coachable kid, a humble kid, an all-around good player on the field and off the field."

Thomas, ranked No. 278 in the class of 2015 as its No. 24 outside linebacker prospect, is expected to begin his career in Tuscaloosa as an inside linebacker. He joins fellow four-star Joshua McMillon and in-state prospect Keaton Anderson at the linebacker position on the Alabama commitment list.
