Thomas, 6-foot-4, 190-pounds, kept in touch with McGee and made an official visit with the Cardinals program this week.
"The biggest reason was because of the coaching changes," he told Cardinal Authority. "I have a good relationship with Coach McGee."
Thomas helped guide Georgia Military to the NJCAA national championship last season where his team fell to East Mississippi. He threw for 1,695 yards and 17 touchdowns with just six interceptions in 2013.
During his two-day visit in the Derby City, Thomas has met with the coaching staff, toured the campus and football facilities, as well as getting a closer look at what the city has to offer.
"I'm loving everything about it," he said. "Everything is really nice."
Eligible to play immediately, Thomas is nearing a decision.
"Actually I do have a favorite - Louisville," he said. "When I get home I'm going to evaluate all of my options and will make a decision."
Thomas is joined by close friend and teammate Jovon Robinson on the visit. Robinson, a 5-foot-11, 225-pound five-star running back, who is also considering Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Tennessee and others.
