2018 DL Thomas Takes In Auburn Scrimmage

Montgomery (Sidney Lanier) standout Alfred Thomas is a top 2018 defensive line prospect. He talks about his Saturday trip to Auburn and what he likes about the Tigers.

Montgomery, Ala.--Expected to be one of the top 2018 defensive linemen in Alabama, physical Alfred Thomas from Sidney Lanier was on the Auburn campus last Saturday with fellow sophomores James Foster and La’Dedric Jackson to check out the Tigers in the second scrimmage of fall camp.

Paying close attention to the defensive line and in particular Montravius Adams, Thomas said he enjoyed getting the chance to get inside Jordan-Hare Stadium and watch Auburn in action.

“I saw him getting pretty good penetration,” Thomas added of Adams. “He was also holding down his gap so they couldn’t run through it. He did good.”

Spending time with the coaching staff while in town Thomas said it was good to talk to them again after making several trips over in the last few months. Being able to see the defensive scheme and what Will Muschamp wants to do on that side of the ball gave Thomas a good idea of what the Tigers are all about and it’s something he likes.

“Yes, it would be a great fit,” the 6-2, 248 Thomas said. “They really want me and I would come. I think they are getting closer to offering. That would be a great feeling to know I’m up there.” Already with offers from North Carolina, Mississippi State and Kentucky, Thomas said in addition to Auburn that Clemson could be close to pulling the trigger on offer as well.

Thomas and his teammates open the season Thursday night against rival Robert E. Lee at Cramton Bowl in Montgomery. A team loaded with young prospects, Sidney Lanier is on the rise and Thomas said he’s ready to get things started.

“I’m very much looking forward to it,” Thomas said of the season. “I’m ready to get out there and do my thing. Since the end of last year I have been wanting to get back on the field.”
