Thus far, the standout
signal caller, who stands 6-3, 195 lb. with a 4.5 time in the 40, has picked up
scholarship offers from LSU,
"LSU is definitely my favorite," Thomas said. "I've liked them for a long time. They were my team growing up. My family is real big on LSU. My cousin is Dominick Davis and Tiger football is in y blood."
This will be Thomas' second trip to LSU in the past month as he was at junior day back in February. However, this time around he will get to see the coaches do what they do best and that is something he is really looking forward to.
"The coaches told me to give me a call when I get down to LSU for the spring game, and that I could come hang out with the players and stuff like that," he told Tiger Rag. "I've never been to the spring game before. I really want to see what the coaches are like on the sidelines. I like coaches who are competitive and get intense."
The coach Thomas has been in contact with the most has been Bradley Dale Peveto, who the quarterback said has been fun talking with.
"Coach Peveto text messages me pretty much every day," he said. "I try and call him up on the phone whenever I get the chance. He's been cool."
In addition to the attitude of the coaching staff, Thomas said he is also looking the quality of each school's football program, and how bad he is wanted by the schools.
In addition to the LSU
spring game, Thomas will have his hands full this weekend as he goes back to
"Next year, we are running a new offense," he said. "I've been working a lot on learning the plays. We're moving to a spread offense where I'll be throwing the ball 40-50 times per game. Last season I was only throwing about 20 or 25 times, so I really want to see if I can do it."
Thomas' style as a signal caller has changed over the years, he said, as he was a pocket passer during his sophomore year before turning into more of a runner last season. This year, however, he will look to do some of both in an effort to lead Aldine back into the state playoffs.
Once spring practices wrap up, the quarterback says he hopes to get up to 205 lbs. before the season starts, and will keep his schedule filled this summer when he will attend camps at LSU, Texas A&M, Texas and a Nike camp in addition to some local day camps and seven on seven tournaments. He also hopes to get to an elite 11 quarterback camp.
"I've got a bunch of stuff I want to do this summer," he said. "We want to be ready for next year. I want us to go undefeated. We're going to have a good team."
