Florida State gets the first crack at Thomas as they host him on Sept. 6. The Sooners are up next and they bat on Sept. 20. The other three programs are still in the process of setting up trips. "I want to use every last one of them," Thomas said. "It's a once in a lifetime opportunity and I don't want to miss it."
So, the summer of 2003 was a big for Thomas, just as he planned. "It was really important for me to get my name out there. I was in a rush to get out there and show them what I could do."
Mission accomplished. Thomas is likely to pop up in our pre-season Top 100 list somewhere in the Top 50.
