    He has been caught off-guard by all the attention he has been receiving from colleges.

    "I am surprised that I am receiving that kind of attention," said Thomas. "My first letter was from Alabama. It was like a shock."

    Considering his size, it's no surprise that he has caught the eye of the coaches. But his effort is what they mention the most when talking to him.

    "Coaches like the way I come off the ball and the effort that I give on the field, never giving up," said Thomas. "I am a very explosive player who comes off the ball with a lot of energy."

    He's already making plans on what college camps he wants to attend this coming summer.

    "This summer, I want to get back to the Alabama and Auburn camps, and probably get to the Kentucky and Florida State camps," said Thomas, who only attended the two in-state camps last summer.
