Devon Thomas Turns In Financial Papeerwork

Oklahoma State running back commitment Devon Thomas has turned his financial aid agreement paperwork into Oklahoma State, which is an early step in enrolling for the spring semester for the 5-11, 210-pound speedster out of Broken Arrow, Okla.

The paperwork does not commit Thomas to Oklahoma State, but it does commit OSU to having a scholarship for Thomas should he enroll for the spring as he is expected to do.

"My mom sent that it today, so yes," said Thomas. "I'm going to enroll for the spring semester."

Thomas and the Tigers have a playoff game at Mustang on Friday night as they try to earn their way into the semifinals of the Oklahoma Class 6A playoffs.

"I'm looking forward to it," Thomas added. "We're going to tear it up tomorrow night."

This season Thomas has rushed for 758 yards on 150 carries for an average of 5.1 yards per carry. He has scored four touchdowns. His sophomore numbers were off the chart and caused a mad rush to recruit Thomas. He finished that sophomore campaign with 1,840 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns on 201 carries (an average of 9.2 yards per carry). Last season, in a shortened season, he had 495 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns on 93 carries.

Thomas committed to Oklahoma State almost a year ago after originally making an early pledge to OU and then having a change of heart.

Besides junior college transfers like OSU commitments Jeremiah Ledbetter, a defensive tackle from Hutchinson (Kan.) C.C., and slot receiver and all-purpose player Tyreek Hill out of Garden City (Kan.) C.C., the Cowboys are also expecting quarterback commitment Mason Rudolph out of Rock Hill Northwestern High School in South Carolina to be a spring enrollee.
