"It will definitely be weird being all done with it, but it's a new chapter in my life so I'm looking forward to it," said Thurston. "I'm looking forward to getting to Lincoln in June."
The No. 1 player in the state of Colorado and the No. 19 offensive tackle in the country (4-star), Thurston is often the forgotten recruit – hardly coming up in discussions on message boards and radio.
The senior might have had something to do with that. While he didn't shy away from the attention, he also didn't go seeking it.
"For me it was mainly not wanting to get pressured into making a decision," said Thurston who committed last summer, somewhat early in the process. "I didn't want to lose a spot because they filled up. I just really wanted to get out there and see all the schools and make a decision."
Thurston went on to talk about being selected as the No. 1 player in the state of Colorado.
"I just really am honored. To put all the hours in in high school, working hard, it's exciting to see your work pay off," said the 4-star talent. "I'm hoping that continues in college. It was definitely exciting to see the ranking."
