Thomas Calls Visit 'Pretty Awesome'

Running back Devon Thomas of Broken Arrow, Okla., has been committed to Oklahoma State longer than any player in the list of commitments for the 2014 recruiting class. The 5-10, 220-pound running back turned in one of the best sophomore seasons in the history of Oklahoma high school football. He will also be one of the first members of the class to officially make it to campus.

"Yes sir, I will be enrolling in January and will be there," said Thomas, who just returned home Sunday from his official recruiting visit to the campus this weekend.

"It was real fun," Thomas said informing us that his host was current redshirt freshman Darius Curry, who will be vying for time in the secondary next season and is the younger brother of wide receiver C.J. Curry. "I found out where I will be living. It's pretty awesome."

Thomas, who this past season helped the Tigers into the second round of the playoffs with 917 rushing yards and six touchdowns on 181 carries. He also caught seven passes for Broken Arrow and had a momentum seizing 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the playoffs against Mustang.

Besides his teammate at OSU in linebacker Gyasi Akem, he said he has talked to incoming quarterback Mason Rudolph and both will be at OSU as freshmen in the spring.

"This weekend I got to hang out with all the football players and we ate a lot," Thomas added.

He also told me that he is currently weighing in at 220 pounds after weighing 215 the last time I saw him play in person on the last regular season Friday night at Westmoore. He got bigger through the course of the season as he told me he was 205 pounds when I saw him score four touchdowns in a scrimmage at Stillwater.

"I do a lot of explosion drills and I have a personal trainer," Thomas concluded.
