Thomas, who stars at Santa Fe High School in California, is Scout.com's No. 73 overall receiver in the class of 2018 and the 17th-ranked receiver in the state of California.
Listed at 6'3" and 180 pounds, Thomas landed attention from most of the nation's elite schools on the West Coast. Arizona State was seen by some as an early contender, along with Cal and Colorado.
"At ASU, I really got to reconnect with my man, Coach (Rob) Likens and get a better in-depth look at ASU," Thomas said, per Brandon Huffman of Scout.com. "I got to see how everything is going over there and the new facilities they're building over there. I'm planning to take another visit to ASU in the near future."
Thomas seemed to want to take his decision slowly and play out the process before making a full commitment.
"I will go through the process and do the official visits and see the campuses of the schools I'm most serious about," Thomas said.
A solid (but not spectacular) athlete, Thomas would probably find his greatest success by bulking up a bit and becoming a stronger red-zone threat. He has enough leaping ability to fight over defenders and make catches at their highest point, so getting him in the weight room will be paramount to him finding success.
Thomas is Colorado's first player ranked 4 stars or higher by Scout.com. He'll join a recruiting class that includes 3-star wideouts Kahlef Hailassie, Daniel Arias and Jarek Broussard.
