Matthew Thomas, a 5-star outside linebacker from Miami, is one of the most coveted recruits in the country. The 6’3”, 200-pound sideline-to-sideline tackle machine ranks as the No. 16 recruit in the country, per 247Sports.

With national powers Alabama, Miami, Florida State and Georgia hot on Thomas’ trail, we have Bleacher Report’s Lead College Football Blogger Michael Felder break down which program would be the perfect fit for the nation's No. 3 OLB.
