Bio: 
Two-year starter who was named OVC Offensive Player of the Year and led the conference with 13 rushing touchdowns while carrying 178 times for 1,065 yards and catching 21 passes for 244 yards in 2017. Earned First Team All-OVC honors and rushed for 782 yards and seven TDs on 127 carries as a junior. Rushed for 475 yards and three scores in two seasons at Auburn before transferring.
Pos: 
Explosive ball carrier who plays fast, physical football. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and has a fluid style. Possesses the agility necessary to turn the corner, keeps his feet moving and runs with authority. Strong for his size, breaks arm tackles and picks up yardage off initial contact. Plays faster than his 40 time and shows the ability to beat defenders into the open field. Effectively follows his blocks. Knows how to become the hot receiver on blitzes.
Neg: 
Must improve as a downfield blocker. Lacks desired size and speed numbers.
Analysis: 
Thomas was a terrific small-school ball carrier who possesses the underlying skill to be a rotational back at the next level.
