Thomas Still Drawing Interest

Ft. Worth (TX) Southwest linebacker Semaj Thomas is firm to TCU despite interest from others.

Ft. Worth (TX) Southwest linebacker Semaj Thomas was one of many talented prospects who made their way to Desoto last week to participate in the Dallas NFTC.

Thomas, the nation's No. 11 MLB prospect according to, has been committed to TCU since February. Despite his commitment to TCU, that hasn't slowed others from pursuing the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder.

Among the programs showing interest in Thomas is Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas and Oklahoma. According to Thomas, the Sooners offered last month.

"Texas Tech has been sending me letters and Texas A&M has been talking to me and Oklahoma and Texas," he said. "I've talked to the OU coach and they've offered me, they offered me a while back. OU and Texas A&M have been trying to get me up to a spring practice but I can't make it up there."

No matter how much interest Thomas has received or gets in the future, he's staying true to TCU. Thomas says he stays in constant communication with the Frog coaches.

"It's been good, I've been going up there to visit and everything," Thomas said. "I'm getting used to the linebacker coach and the defense. It's been good, it's real high paced and exciting. The college level is exciting for me to see."

With TCU's campus such a short drive from home, Thomas says it was a big plus for him to have the opportunity to see as many TCU practices he could.

"It's beneficial because I'm probably not going to graduate early to get up there so just being 15-20 minutes away is real beneficial," he said.

Thomas and his Southwest teammates will begin spring ball next month.
