- _247: 2* / 75 Rating

Other Offers: Delaware, Kent State, Norfolk State, Old Dominion

Notes:  Virginia was the only BCS school to offer Thomas. Thomas had originally committed to Old Dominion, until in late January, after Thomas did his official visit at Virginia. His senior year, he posted 72 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions. ESPN says he shows good flexibility, balance and agility, but will need to work on his burst and long speed.

Quotables

"I'd say the highlight of [his official visit weekend] was Coach London. Coach London's a great guy. That's all I can say. I just want to be a part of what he's doing. The guy is building a new program and he's very excited. This morning it sounded like he was preaching a sermon. I got to church for the day."
