UTSA have snagged another commitment for their 2014 Football Class when Kerry Thomas was revealed to be joining the school, it was revealed on Monday.

Thomas marks UTSA's ninth signing for their fifth class so far and their third in just two weeks following the double signing last week.

The 6'1" Receiver from Texas A&M Consolidated in the shadow of the famous university in College Station has had quite a rise on the varsity football scene.

Thomas originally made his mark as a basketball player for Consolidated, unsurprising given his size, but two years ago made the switch to football and has exploded on the scene.

It was a phenomenal senior season for the receiver as he managed 98 receptions for a total of 1,348 yards, netting 16 touchdowns in the process.

The playoffs showed how lethal Thomas can be with 35 receptions for 446 yards and five touchdowns in their four playoff games.

His performances throughout the year saw him earn an honorable mention for the Associated Press' all-state team, perhaps missing out as his phenomenal playoff performances were not considered by the AP.

Thomas reported that UTSA had been scouting him heavily throughout the year, and they showed that confidence by giving him his first scholarship offer.

There is some tough competition for Thomas with Fresno State, New Mexico, Wake Forest, and Southern Mississippi all reporting interest in the College Station receiver.

Strength is Thomas' big advantage, he may not have the speed that other receivers possess to spin through a challenge but his strength is phenomenal and will be a vital asset as he will look to hold off defensive players to make the space for the catch.
