Lots of prospects at this week's Houston Nutt Football Camp have made their names by catching passes.
North Little Rock free safety DeShaun Thomas (6-1, 180, 4.5) has made his name by making sure that doesn't happen.
Thomas had 12 interceptions last season as a junior for the Charging Wildcats and has shined so far at this week's event.
"I think I have good coverage skills, but I think most of those interceptions came from watching film and knowing what the other team likes to do in certain situations, knowing the quarterback well and just making plays," Thomas said.
Thomas made both Arkansas Junior Days and is back for camp so obviously he has a lot of interest in the Razorbacks.
"I am very interested in Arkansas," Thomas said. "I like the fact that they like to run a lot of cover 2 and man and let the free safety roam and play football," Thomas said. "It's just a great fit for me, it's at home, there is great coaching and I would be around a lot of great players."
Thomas also has some interest in Oklahoma State – where he may attend camp later this year – Tulsa and Kansas, where former North Little Rock linebacker Chea Peterman is headed as a walk on with a promise of being on scholarship the second semester.
"He talks it up a lot and it is something that I am going to consider, but I would like to end up here at Arkansas for sure," Thomas said. "I hope it all works out."
