"I'm going to North Carolina State," said Thomas. "I actually committed to them tonight. Coach O'Brien and coach Bible, really the whole staff, were key to my decision.
"I've always liked NC State, ever since I was in high school. It didn't work out then, but I'm glad that it will now. I know it is a great program and they are going to be really good."
A four-star recruit in the 2010 class, Thomas starred at El Cajon (CA) Valhalla High School before signing with Colorado State. He started as a true freshman in 2010, passing for 2,662 yards and 11 touchdowns with 13 interceptions.
In 2011 he started the first nine games before going down for the rest of the season with a knee injury, passing for 1,607 yards and seven touchdowns with eight interceptions.
Thomas stated that he seriously considered UCLA and Vanderbilt before committing to NC State.
"I took a visit there back in high school," he said. "It's a place I've wanted to go. I'm very excited it worked out."
The 6-foot-5, 225-pounder will redshirt this season and have two years of eligibility remaining. He will be in Raleigh this weekend for an official visit to NC State.
Pack Pride will have more from Thomas on his commitment in the near future so stay tuned!
