Talented Thomas Camps at Auburn

Class of 2014 prospect Racquean "Rock" Thomas talks about his visit to Auburn in this report which includes last season's game video highlights.

Oxford, Ala.--Racean Thomas said he enjoyed this weekend Auburn football camp and his first trip to the Plains.

The running back is expected to be one of the top prospects in the state for the 2014 signing class and he got plenty of attention from Auburn head coach Gene Chizik on Sunday.

The Oxford High School standout said his first conversation came during one-on-one drills when Chizik asked the running back how he was testing.

Running indoors on artificial turf to avoid heavy rain outdoors, Thomas ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds and measured in at 32 1/2 inches on his vertical jump.

After the camp concluded Thomas, who has an early scholarship offer from Auburn, Alabama, LSU and others, was invited to Chizik's office for a more in-depth conversation.

"He was just asking if I wanted to come back or when I could come back and If anybody could bring me, stuff like that."

Thomas was a star last season as a sophomore at Oxford High.

Thomas, who is nicknamed "Rock," said he felt he performed well and enjoyed the camp and the competition level. He was also impressed by what he saw.

"I like the campus and facilities and all that," he said. "It was a good experience for me because I had never seen that stuff. I really wanted to see it last year, but I really didn't get a chance to."

Thomas' plans for the rest of the summer are "workout, workout and workout." The 5-10 1/2, 191-pound running back said he's trying to get bigger and improve his speed.

"I just want to lead my team to doing better than we did last year, in which we got put out in the semi-finals," he said. "There's not really much else I want to do, just help my team get better in their ways, improving their skills, just being a better person."
