Six days before Kansas coach Charlie Weis heads to Dallas for Big 12 media days, he landed a commitment from a three-star receiver from the Metroplex.
Kevin Thomas, who will be a senior at DeSoto (Texas) High School, committed to KU on Tuesday during an unofficial visit to campus, according to Rivals.com. Thomas, 6 feet 2 and 180 pounds, also had offers from a group of schools that included Clemson, Nebraska, Indiana, Maryland and Wisconsin.
“The people and coaches stood out,” Thomas told Rivals.com. “I didn’t know the coaches were as down to earth as they are. A lot of schools will tell you that they are family-oriented and close, but sometimes they aren’t. I felt the Kansas coaches were.”
Thomas becomes the 11th member of Kansas’ 2015 recruiting class and the third receiver. Junior college receivers Raeshawn Lee and Cory Butler (who could also play defense) committed earlier this summer.
