"Man, when my coach told me USC had offered me, I didn't know what to do," said Thomas. "It's like I've been waiting on USC for the longest time, and to finally get that offer made me very happy. And yes, I am very interested in USC!!"
Although Thomas hasn't met or spoken to anyone on Lane Kiffin's satff, Thomas said his coach has.
"I haven't talked anyone from USC, yet but my coach has," said Thomas. "He said they really want to talk to me. They want me to come up there so I can meet everybody and just see everything."
It's quite an honor to be given a No. 1 ranking by Scout.com for any position, but it's clear Thomas won't let the scholarship offers/accolades he's received, and will receive, affect him as person or player.
"I have 21 scholarship offers and it feels great to be the No. 1 MLB in the nation," Thomas said. "It's like my dreams are starting to come true. But I just gotta stay humbled, you know?"
Scout.com will continue to provide updates on Thomas throughout the process.
