This is interesting. He'd rather sit out 2 years than play here. That sucks. EDIT: Here's a snippet of the story. Thomas could not be reached for comment Tuesday, but his adopted father, former New Smyrna Beach assistant Andy Cox, said that Thomas was already in Ypsilanti, Mich., enrolled in classes for the spring semester. Thomas chose Eastern Michigan, Cox said, because former Louisville defensive coordinator Ron English was named its head coach in December. However, Cox said Louisville had not agreed to release Thomas from his scholarship. "We're going to have a hearing about it, but if they don't let him out of it he could have to sit out two years," Cox said. "LT really liked (English) and wants to play for him." As of now, Thomas is paying his own way at Eastern Michigan, but Cox said if they lose the appeal at Louisville, they will appeal to the NCAA.
