One of the most underrated defensive backs out of John F. Kennedy High School will be putting his talents on display in the Southland conference the next four years.
Thomas held offers from UAB, ULM, South Alabama, Middle Tennessee, Northwestern State, & Nicholls State. The Lions coaching staff made a big impression on Thomas throughout his recruitment & it ended up being the difference. “Every time I went on campus I felt right at home,” Thomas said. “My relationship with coach Scelfo, Coach Guidry, & coach Joseph played a big part into why I felt like this was where I belonged.”
Many believe had Thomas not been plagued by injuries the last year & a half he would have been sought after by some bigger programs. I’m sure Southeastern head coach Frank Scelfo & his staff glad it played out the way it did.
The 6-foot, 190 pound defensive back will be asked to play a number of roles in the secondary, but nickel back is where he’ll see some time at early as a freshman. Thomas excels at being physical at the line of scrimmage along with reading and reacting to the wide receiver and the quarterback. His ability to go from seeing it to processing it to reacting is what makes Thomas special in my mind.
