PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers opened spring practice Tuesday, and it meant freshman Ian Thomas was in a different spot. The one-time receiver made the move from receiver to cornerback during bowl practice, and he has remained there.
Ian Thomas was recruited to play receiver and possible replace Mohamed Sanu in the offense, but after red-shirting as a receiver in 2012, he finds himself as a cornerback looking to make a depth chart move in the secondary.
Rutgers opened spring practice Tuesday, and the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Thomas looked comfortable, quick and loose at cornerback.
He was moved there, in part, because former Rutgers cornerback Logan Ryan approached the coaching staff and suggested it, and Thomas was more than willing to flip sides of the field.
He spoke about it with ScarletReport.com in this exclusive interview.
