He pleaded no contest and was sentenced last August.As a member of OSU’s heralded 2014 recruiting class (a class that featured Tyreek Hill, James Washington, Ramon Richards, Zach Sinor and others), Thomas — a four-star recruit from Broken Arrow — joined Mason Rudolph and Devante Averette as early enrollees who arrived on campus to compete in the spring. But off-field issues and a summer arrest prompted him to be removed from the team before the 2014 season began.AdChoices广告According to the Tulsa World report citing details from the affidavits related to the crimes, Thomas held a man at gunpoint and took his clothes and money in May 2014. In the July 2015 crime, Thomas was described to have pointed a gun at a motorist and demanded to give him everything.
