from Florence, South Carolina on Tuesday according to his twitter account.

Many analysts consider him the top South Carolina prospect for his recruiting cycle. Thomas has early offers from Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Nebraska and Tennessee. He grew up a South Carolina fan.

Thomas has been working out at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp this week and TigerNet spoke with him on Wednesday morning and he said that he was excited about the offer.

"I loved talking and learning from every coach out there," said Thomas about going through the different drills at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

"I love everything about Clemson, the coaches, players, facilities, it was just the pride every one had for Clemson," said Thomas. "I love it because everyone supports Clemson. I mean everywhere I went I saw orange or either a paw or tiger or something that represents the pride they have for Clemson."

His mother who has reportedly been a Gamecock fan over the years came away impressed with the Tigers. "My mother felt at home and very welcomed while talking to the coaches. I was also able to run down the hill."

Thomas could see himself one day donning the Clemson jersey and playing football in Death Valley. "I know the tradition and I felt honored maybe one day I will be running down that hill with a Clemson uniform on."

In his first 8 games as a freshman, he had 48 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, six sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. For the season (in 10 games), he had 59 tackles and 8 sacks.

He will be taking a Tennessee Camp and Florida State camp in July and also doing a football camp at South Carolina.
