It does not take long to realize that the rising junior out of Clinton loves to bring the hammer at the safety position. When he makes contact, the other person usually goes backward. That physical presence was made last season as a sophomore when he busted on the scene with 62 tackles and two picks for defensive touchdowns.
LaMarques Thomas checked in at 6' 0", 180-pounds at the Nike Combine in Birmingham, Ala. He did not run the best forty time, 4.84, but he did run in the 4'6's at the Under Armour combine earlier in the spring. Thomas has had all of the Mississippi programs show up at his school this spring along with Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, and several more.
