Thomas, who is being recruited by Kenny Browning, arrived in Chapel Hill Saturday morning. The 6-foot-6, 233-pound athlete from Lynchburg (Va.) Brookville went on to participate in both of the day's sessions under the guidance of Steve Hagen, UNC's tight ends coach.
"I didn't know what to expect coming in," Thomas said. "[Hagen] is a crazy guy. He is so funny and is always upbeat. You really couldn't quite tell what type of person he is until you get around him and see what he's all about. I had a good time and I learned a lot from him."
During his stay, Thomas received his first look at the weight room and got to talk to members of the academic staff. He also met with Butch Davis for a good half hour.
"I was in there picking [Davis'] brain, and hearing about what all he has to say and how he would use me," Thomas said. "He said he'd use me as a Kellen Winslow-type of player. He said [Winslow] and I have the same body frame and good speed. He said Kellen caught 60-70 balls for him and that's what he looks for from me.
"He talked about the character of the players he wants. He wants good character players and he won't recruit ones who are not good character players.
"He really just talked about the future and how good of a player I could be no matter where I went. It's good to hear that from someone like him."
Davis also informed Thomas that he is UNC's top prospect on its tight end recruiting board.
Although Thomas claims to be open to all schools, the visit has increased UNC chances of landing the Scout.com four-star prospect.
"[UNC is] probably one of the places I possibly want to go to when I start to narrow things down," Thomas said.
Thomas plans to announce a final five to seven schools by the end of the summer.
"[I'm looking for] of course some place where I can stay for four years and enjoy it, good academics, and a good coaching staff," Thomas said.
Thomas has also camped at Virginia Tech and Wake Forest, and will camp Tuesday at Virginia and Sunday at West Virginia.
