In today’s Journal you can find a signing day follow-up I wrote on offensive tackle Jake Thomas, a 6-foot-5, 300-pounder from Columbus High School. The point of the story was to look at a player who’s flown under the radar a bit but could have a huge impact for MSU down the line. I had a good talk with Thomas yesterday. He was fresh off Tuesday’s International Bowl, a high school all-star game played in Austin, Texas. Thomas, a left tackle from Columbus, actually played guard in the game, which the U.S. team won, 29-14. He said he enjoyed playing a new position.
