The place to talk about the Florida State Seminoles
The place to discuss general topics outside of Florida State
You have no favorite boards.
So what is going to happen with him now? Cant Jimbo just say, we will grant your release but you cant go to the following schools and include UGA and USC in them? This is going to be interesting.
The thing about letting him go is that only encourages schools to continue to recruit your players after they sign LOIs. Also it further hamstrings your ability to plan a class and depth chart. I say bring him to campus and show him why he liked it in the first place.
Always something, recruiting is such a F#@$@#$ing circus, just ridiculous.
Would set a HORRIBLE precedent to release him. I really hope Jimbo doesn't. Make the kid change his mind or sit out a year.
Well GD. I don't want to lose him because he's a big time player, but if he doesn't want to be with us then let him go. At FSU we don't need people that don't want us. We'll be fine without him even though I'd love for us to keep him
Wow seriously he wants to go play in that dumpster fire in LA than play in front of friends and family
If I'm reading this correctly is Thomas saying he doesn't have the talent or confidence to come in here and fight for playing time? If he thinks it will be two years before he sees the field then there's something going on I wasn't seeing. He looked to have the physical tools and talent to see the field as a Freshman. He won't start perhaps but he would definately see playing time.
Also, are Georgia and USC feeding him a line that he can start at their schools? Well if that is so they must not have any LB's on their rosters cause talent is one thing but being ready to start as a Freshman........anybody remember Jeff Luc?

Where's Ice Harris now? Guy went nuts when Miami pulled the offer from his O-lineman. Commitment is a two way street right?
Since he is signed I don't think it would be illegal to send Derrick Brooks down there to tell him what playing LB at FSU can get for you, right?
If FSU wasn't a fit your gonna sit.
Cold feet. Happens with most incoming players.
This is why we didn't lock threads or call the rumor ridiculous. I tried contacting Thomas and never spoke with him. While I didn't expect it to come to this, nothing surprises me.
That being said...I still don't see FSU letting him out of his LOI.

Do you think this is something that can be resolved when gets on campus? Why the sudden change? If Fsu let's him out of loi it will open pandaro's box.
