NORMAN, Okla. — Make it two Miami area commitments for the Sooners' 2013 class.

Safety Ahmad Thomas has given his verbal to OU, joining running back Greg Bryant as a South Florida Sooner commit for 2013.

"Yes sir [I committed]," Thomas confirmed to Sooners Tuesday evening.

Thomas becomes the eighth overall pledgee in a class that currently ranks 13th.

He's a three-star prospect and the 53rd-ranked safety in the country, also owning offers from Auburn and North Carolina State.

Thomas is the second defensive back commitment out of five defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said he plans to sign, with cornerback Stanvon Taylor serving as the other to this point.
