Thomas Ready for Senior Year

After being the feature back at Bishop Verot, Schon Thomas will take his game to Dunbar for his senior year. The 5'10, 175 pounder with 4.4 speed is an intriguing prospect for 2010.

Thomas discussed his transfer, "I liked my time at Bishop Verot, but I felt like the time was right to go to Dunbar. This team has a lot of talent and we expect to do some damage in the playoffs this year. I was mainly a RB before with some defense, but I will play CB with a little WR or RB on offense. I am being recruited as a CB so the fit is right."

Thomas has been known as one of the top players since Pop Warner in the area, "I am confident in what I can do on the football field, I feel I can be a lockdown CB at the next level, I expect to show that this year."

On the recruiting trail Thomas is hearing from a number of schools, "Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, USF, and North Carolina have all been in contact and I would like to hear from Tennessee, Miami, and West Virginia."

Thomas talked about leaving the state for college, "I am fine either way. I have known guys who stay close who liked it and others who have gone away and liked it. I am interested in the academics of the college and developing a relationship with the coaches. I will know when the time is right."

While Thomas has drawn plenty of interest he does not have a D-1 offer, "I am disappointed at this point. I felt like things would happen sooner for me, but that is the way it sometimes works. Antavian Edison flew under the radar last year and ended up at Purdue fairly late in the process. My time will come."

Dunbar lost a heart-breaker to Naples in the playoffs last year and opens the season with them in early September, "I was not a part of that game, but all the guys are talking about it. I am just trying to fit in with the team, play my role, and help us win games, the rest will take care of itself."

Thomas has plenty of speed coupled very long arms, qualities that colleges covet in a DB.
