Playing defensive tackle and fullback for the small school in Robbins, North Carolina, Thomas led his team in tackles with fifty while adding 600 yards and six touchdowns on offense.
His head coach sent out film to twenty schools, and they had plenty of interest come from around the nation.
"Florida State, Kansas, Nebraska, Miami, Indiana, and Duke all wanted to know more about him," says head coach Bryan Lee. "Miami said he was one of the top three defensive tackles they had seen this year, so they were very interested in him."
However, Thomas had his eyes set on staying closer to home.
"It was the closeness that I liked about North Carolina," says the 6-foot-5, 310 pounder with a size 17-shoe. "Coach Brewer was a big reason too. He is a really funny guy, and like an older brother for me."
With Thomas still growing, and projected to be around 6-7 according to his doctors, schools certainly like his potential.
"I'm solid as a rock though, even if those other schools do end up offering."
Known as "Cam" around his friends, Thomas will camp at North Carolina this year and is happy to finish his recruiting.
"Now the pressure is off."
