Thimons shared the news to his Twitter followers, saying, "I'm proud to announce that I'm committed to my dream school and will playing college football at WVU!"
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker received his scholarship offer from WVU not long ago as the Mountaineers were the first program to offer him shortly after performing well at a camp in Morgantown.
"I think them being able to see me in person one last time to make sure I was what they wanted," Thimons told BlueGoldNews.com after he was offered. "They didn't say exactly what they saw that they liked, but I know they definitely want me to play middle linebacker. They want me to fill that spot."
The Scout.com team will have more exclusive coverage of Thimons' commitment later this evening.
