Thomas Working to Become Eligible

Dallas Skyline three-star defensive tackle Mychealon Thomas is working hard in the classroom to become eligible. Texas Tech, Houston and SMU are among schools interested in his services, when he does.

Dallas Skyline defensive tackle Mychealon Thomas has held off on making commitments until his grades improve and recruitment picks back up.

Thomas, a 6-foot-2, 300-pound, three-star prospect wants to play for a Division I school. Thomas said his athletic ability for his size is what makes him able to excel at his position.

"I'm the big dude that holds the middle," Thomas said. "I am athletic, a physical player and use my hands a lot. It's important for me to be smart to the game."

Thomas initially received offers from Houston and SMU. Additionally, because of academic requirements Thomas is being recruited by a number of junior colleges.

Texas Tech was interested in Thomas and was recruiting him hard.

"Texas Tech was recruiting me a lot at first but then they found my grades and that slowed down. I am not eligible for any Division I schools." Thomas said. "I am now only getting offers from junior colleges."

The number one focus for Thomas is to improve his grades in order to realize his dream of playing D-I football.

"Getting my grades up is my number one priority and hopefully they will be up at the end of this semester," Thomas said. "Then I think that will improve my likelihood of being recruited by Division I teams again."
