Texas sleeper heads to OSU

The Oklahoma State Cowboys received a commitment from the top sleeper prospect in Greater Houston.
Texas City, Texas, safety Johnny Thomas took an official visit this weekend to Stillwater, Oklahoma, and came home a Cowboy.
"He committed over the weekend and I'm really excited for him," Texas City coach Tim Finn said. "I really think it is a good fit for him. There are a lot of local kids up there and he will fit right in.
"At first he comes off as a quiet guy, but he really is thoughtful and is very intelligent," Finn said. "We've loved coaching him and his teammates love him also."
After tallying eight interceptions as a junior, Thomas moved to running back and exploded on the high school scene. The 6-foot-0, 173-pounder earned the most valuable player in District 23-4A, rushing for 1,786 yards and 21 touchdowns.
Thomas also had offers from Ole Miss, Rice and TCU.
