Recruiting: Thomas Dominates In Houston

Athlete Darron Thomas of Aldine, Texas was another Houston area standout high school player among the nearly 200 players that attended the Oklahoma State mini camp at Delmar Stadium in Houston on Wednesday morning. The 6-3, 183-pound speedster is a quarterback at Aldine but the camp allowed him the opportunity to try his skills at another position that he expects to play in college.

"It was good," said Thomas of the camp in which he estimated had a little over 150 participants. "It really was easy. There wasn't any competition for me. I thought I dominated at wide receiver. That's the position all the schools are really recruiting me to play in college. I was the best in the one-on-one drills. I was the best one on the field."

Thomas said the camp allowed him to see the Oklahoma State coaches again.

"I really know Defo (Coach DeForest) the best, but I got to meet all the coaches when I was up there (Stillwater) for the spring game," said Thomas. "It was a good workout and good to work with a college wide receiver coach. I thought the workout was good."

Thomas said he has already been to an LSU camp and also plans on attending camps at Houston and Texas A&M. All of those schools are in the mix with him in recruiting along with Nebraska, Northwestern and Missouri.

"I don't know," said Thomas when asked if he had paired down the schools into a "top" list. "I'm just open and I believe I'm going to stay that way through the season and make my official visits after the (high school) season is over. Right now I want to concentrate on my high school season."

One player that did not make it to the OSU camp was Channelview, Texas athlete Jackie Hinton. The 5-11, 185-pound speedy prospect had finals.

"No, I couldn't make it, I had final exams today," said Hinton after his father handed him the phone. "I still have one more day of finals tomorrow."

Hinton did say he hopes to make it to Stillwater for one of his summer camps.
