Thomas transfers from Texas A&M.
I love the staff and the school, but I just feel as though it’s best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else…I’m just hoping to find somewhere that I can get an opportunity to show what I can do. I have no bad feelings about anything. I appreciate everything Coach [Billy] Kennedy and the staff did for me, and I’m hoping they are successful.
