Has 5* Matthew Thomas been to our campus? Does he have any upcoming plans for a summer visit?
He has named Bama in his top five. (W/ Miami, FSU, Ga, Louisville) He is from the Miami area and implied that he might want to venture away from home a bit. He would be a huge addition.
Anyone have any information? THANKS & ROLL TIDE..........
He has named Bama as his favorite in several occasions. I'm not sure if he has been on campus or not though, sorry
At first it was us and Miami but I believe he said that Miami has dropped back and FSU has stepped up. If we have the room to take another linebacker I think we have an excellent chance of landing him. Didn't he come to one of our camps? Not positive about that but I think he did.
Having room isn't an issue. Otherwise we would not have offered Shaun McGee out of Georgia last wk
Where would he play for us? He's more of an outside guy. At 205 lbs he would have to gain an awful lot of weight to play Jack. Certainly guys can do that at a college training table but it's a lot. Would he be a Jack or a Sam?
I think he could be an inside guy and transition to an designated edge rusher on third and long. He is long and lean like an outside backer but he bangs in between the tackles with the best of them. With added weight he will be an every down player that brings a ton of versatility to a LB corps.
This guy would be the perfect SAM. The Miami people on tBB think if they don't get crushed with penalties then they get him, if not then they think that he comes to Bama. The FSU guys think if it is not Miami then it is them.

Kid has great potential at LB and knows Bama has a past and future at LB..he list us the leader and i think he wants to commit after his season, or NSD. This is just my opinion but kids have a short memory, Saban will put the press on him later in the year, like I think we will with Tunsil. See CyKo and AU for reference. I know when i was being recruited i had 2 coaches who called me once every week, and 2 that didn't. My final 2 were the ones that didnt call and talk to my parents for hours when I wasnt home. This is not the case all the time, but MT has us as the leader and IMO its because of the way we recruit him. Later on he will be the talk of recruiting along with RN
