Photos, Scouting Report on Thomas

Scout.com was in attendance of the first game of the season for UCLA-committed safety Earnest Thomas, of Orchard Lake (Mich.) St. Mary's. Here are a few photos and a scouting report on Thomas from the game...


7 Earnest Thomas Safety/Linebacker Senior
The UCLA commitment had a fairly quiet night, but did come away with a handful of tackles and had an interception return for a touchdown called back. He is a good player who squares up and makes solid tackles. He also made several special teams plays. He was in the box for much of the game tonight, so we did not get to see a ton of him in coverage. When he was in coverage, he looked comfortable there, but was not thrown at. Where he can improve is taking on and shedding blocks and he can still get faster, but UCLA is getting a kid who could really help on special teams early in his career while learning either the safety or linebacker position.
