Thomas Couldn't Fight Michigan Feeling

The excitement at the Big House didn't end when the game did Saturday night. Moments after the team left the field, Alliance (OH) Marlington Jr. athlete Dymonte Thomas informed the Michigan coaching staff that he was ready to become a Wolverine. The Buckeye State star is the second commitment in Michigan's 2013 class, joining Warren De La Salle quarterback, Shane Morris.

The drama was thick in Ann Arbor Saturday night.  Two traditional rivals – two historic titans of college football locked horns in what will go down as one of the most thrilling games ever played in Michigan stadium.  And while neither team is necessarily a “Titan” currently, for one night they were nothing if not resilient.  It was that never say die attitude in Michigan that ultimately won over one of the top recruits in the 2013 class.  Alliance (OH) Marlington athlete Dymonte Thomas – attending his first game at the Big House – saw enough intestinal fortitude in the Wolverines to convince him that there was no other program he’d rather be a part of.

“Right at the end I realized that even if they’re losing with 30 seconds left on the clock, no matter what, we’re always going to fight back,” said Thomas.  “We’re always going to get the ball and we’re always going to do our best.  It’s Michigan!  I really thought they had a chance (on their last possession).  I knew they did!  Thirty seconds left and you still have two timeouts and you still have many playmakers.  The quarterback if you give him time in the pocket will take over. When I looked the quarterback and I looked at the guys on the sideline… they were all talking to each other and I said, ‘you know what, I love that.  You’ve got to get your boys hype in order to win.”

“Visiting (Michigan), looking at the atmosphere, talking to some of  the players, some of the kids in my class that committed like Shane Morris, and also the coaches… it just made me feel like I’m part of the family.  I really felt well at Michigan, so I decided to commit.”

Upon hearing the news the Michigan coaching staff could hardly believe that after they’d experienced so much good fortune on the field, that there was still some left over for the locker room.

“They thought I was just messing around,” said Thomas regarding his future coaches.  “I was like, ‘I’m for real!’  Then they believed me and they were pumped.  They said they were glad to have me.  They wanted me at (defensive back), but talking to Coach Mattison and them, they said they also like me on the offensive side of the ball.  They really don’t know what side of the ball they want me on exactly.”

That’s likely a sign of both his athletic talent and the suddenness of the decision. Proof of how surprising the decision was is the fact that even the youngster’s father Frank was caught off guard.

“He didn’t believe me either,” the elder Thomas added.  “He didn’t think I’d really commit.  He thought I was going to wait it out.  I was like, ‘nah, I need this stress off my shoulders and get done with this.’  I wanted to get done and get it over with so I could continue playing high school football.”

Mr. Thomas’ primary concern was making sure that his son wasn’t so overwhelmed by the emotion of the moment that he made a hasty decision.

“He had said he wanted to go around and see other places, but after the game he said, ‘I’m pumped and I’m committing tonight!’  I was like, ‘are you serious?’ (Laughter)  He was like, ‘yes… now where is the coach at so I can tell him!’ (Laughter).  I just had to ask him a few times to be sure.  He is sure, and I’m proud of him.  I figured he was going to do it at some point.  The game was just the icing on the cake.  It was crazy!  I knew it was going to be a lot of people, but just coming to Michigan… the fans are just unbelievable.  I’ve never seen anything like it.”

With college still nearly two years away, coaches from other programs will surely try use that time to pry him away from the Maize & Blue.  Thomas plans to send those schools a very clear message.

“Once you commit somewhere you don’t leave them,” the youngster said emphatically.  “You don’t do that.  That’s like having a best friend and stabbing them in the back.  You don’t do that.  Once you commit, you stay 100.”

That is unless you’re Thomas’ cousin Brionte Dunn and he wants you to attend Michigan with him.

“I think (Dunn) is going to end up coming with me once he realizes I committed,” the Marlington star said.  “He doesn’t know I committed yet, but when he finds out he is going to end up coming here.  I’m going to keep on trying to work on him and try to get him committed (to Michigan) and trying to get him to de-commit (from Ohio State).  But you never know with Brionte.  He is one of those kids that waits until the last minute."

“(Dunn) might really lean this way once Dymonte gets to talking to him and everything,” Frank added.  “It’s going to be really interesting.”

The plan is for things to be much less interesting on the Dymonte Thomas front.  A solid commitment on his part allows for him to shift all of his athletic focus to his high school team.

“Right now we just got done beating Poland 40-21 I believe,” reported Thomas.  “Right now we’re 3-0.  We’re doing pretty good.  First game I was hurt with a hip pointer. I still try to play and just tough it out for my team.  I didn’t do so hot and it really hurt my yards and carries and everything.  I came back the second game, had 120 yards, scored two touchdowns, had a couple of tackles.  Then Friday I had the ball a couple times, made some good runs, had about 76 yards, and made some tackles.  Right now I’m in the process of getting healthy again.”
