"It's a good relationship, I go see them when I go see them when I go over there to visit and watch games, I'll go to practice and watch everything. It's cool, it's like a family," he said.
Thomas mostly talks to Miami Defensive Line Coach Jethro Franklin, and they've developed a good relationship.
"He's funny. He's a hard worker when it's time to work, but off the field he's cool," Thomas said.
Florida State is also high on the list of the 6-foot-5, 240-pound defensive end. "(They like) my intensity, how I keep going every play," he said.
"It's a good fit, yes. They have a powerhouse defense and I see it as smash-mouth football when I see them play."
While he hasn't been in contact with LSU as much lately as he had in the past, he's still very high on the Bayou Bengals.
"(They compete against) big players. It's the SEC, it's big football," Thomas said.
"I'm a big person, I'm not used to small people. If I go there, it would just be like football, playing with big people my size."
Another school to possibly keep an eye on with Thomas is North Carolina State. NC State was one of his more recent offers and he said it's one of the programs recruiting him the hardest, along with FSU and Miami.
"It's a cool program and a lot of people left, so I know as a freshman if I go there, I'll play," he said of NC State.
"They like how I come off the ball, they love my bull rushing, and how I contain the QB."
Thomas doesn't have any plans to visit anywhere this spring, but he'll probably catch a practice or the spring game at Miami. Stay tuned to FOX Sports NEXT for the latest on his recruitment.
