QB Transfer Has Landed

Earlier this spring, Micah Thomas was told by the Utah Coaching Staff that he would be getting moved from QB to WR. In hopes of still playing QB, he decided to transfer closer to home and has chosen Texas State.

Out of Galena Park North Shore, Micah Thomas was known as a dual threat QB with 4.4 speed that chose Utah over offers from Colorado, Baylor and others. His versatility and athleticism had some programs recruit him as a QB, WR, and others as a DB.

Former Utah WR Micah Thomas is transferring to Texas State to play QB.

In the end he wanted to play QB and chose the Utes who were giving him the opportunity. He red shirted last season as a true freshman and the Utah Coaching Staff informed him this spring that he was getting switched to wide-out. Shortly after Thomas decided it was best to transfer and started the paperwork for a transfer to Texas State.

BI first became aware of Thomas' plans to enroll at Texas State last week, but as always is the case with transfers, paperwork has to clear before making anything official. On Monday afternoon a source confirmed to our staff that Thomas had been accepted and will be on campus for fall camp.

Thomas has been told he will play QB. He does have to sit out one year per NCAA transfer rules, but will still have 3 years left to play, starting in 2015. If all QB personnel stay the same for next year, Tyler Jones would be a junior, Randy Price a senior if he does not red shirt this fall, Connor White a red shirt freshman more than likely, and two incoming freshman in L.G. Williams and Blake Peterson. This would mean Texas State could have up to 5 QB's on scholarship for 2015.
