Well, apparently Tuesday's trip north sealed the deal for the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Thomas, who announced his commitment to Kansas during an unofficial visit in Lawrence.
Thomas is the third 2015 prospect from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to commit to Kansas since June 26, when two players from the region pledged to the Jayhawks during visits to Lawrence.
Denton Guyer defensive lineman Carl Thompson and Fort Worth Dunbar running back Taylor Martin were the first two DFW commitments for Kansas. Thomas, Thompson, and Martin are all three-star prospects, according to Scout.com, which ranks Thomas as the nation's No. 74 receiver in the 2015 class.
Thompson chose Kansas over 13 other offers, including four from Power 5 conferences: Air Force, Arkansas State, Colorado State, Connecticut, Duke, Houston, Louisiana Tech, Minnesota, Nevada, North Texas, Northwestern, UCF, and Wake Forest. Taylor picked the Jayhawks over offers from Colorado State and Purdue.
Thomas had a strong 2013 season, finishing with 60 receptions for 822 yards and seven touchdowns.
Oddly enough, of Thomas' 11 offers, only one -- SMU -- is from within state boundaries.
