    *** OLB Adonis Thomas Commits to Alabama ***

    Bama offered Thomas on March 5. He made a visit in April and enjoyed himself. He announces his decision on August 1. He's down to Alabama and Florida.

    96% of his 247 Crystal Ball predictions are for Florida.

    Appears to be in the mold of Evans and Christian Miller we signed in the '14 class. I would not count us out and would love to get this guy.

    Definitely a good player, but I'd be shocked if he chooses us.

    I generally believe that people who commit this early know exactly where they want to go and they already have the offers they want. I know this isn't always the case, but it should be. If Florida has been his longtime favorite, chances are he goes with them. Of course, still a long ways til signing day.

    Things are looking good for Thomas to Alabama come August 1. Kip Adams who has been very good with his predictions has change his pick from Florida to Alabama. According to Adams, CNS and staff have come on very strong the last few weeks and have told Thomas he reminds them of past great ILBs ,Rolando McClain and Donta Hightower. They like his coverage skills against HUNH teams and eventually would like him to add weight to play ILB down the road. Lets see what happens....

    Re: OLB Adonis Thomas Updates

    Can't say that I feel overwhelmingly confident here because early, longtime leaders are often a difficult thing to overcome, but since Kirby starting turning up the intensity of Thomas' recruitment we've made a lot of in-roads with him. His Mom and Dad were with him in Tuscaloosa a few weeks ago, which obviously never hurts, and Tuscaloosa is a bit closer to home than Gainesville (though it doesn't seem like location is a big consideration for him). He has generally been a lot more receptive to our overtures than most thought that he would.

    My gut instinct tells me that he probably still picks Florida in a few days, but again we've certainly made it interesting. It shouldn't come as a big surprise if we can nab him.

    Based on his tweet today we appear to at least be giving him something to think about.

    Apparently he plans on taking an official visit to Oregon, but I doubt that means anything. Free trip for the Nike tour, basically...
