Jordan Thomas attended Arizona State's satellite camp in Richmond, Calif., on Thursday and the Sun Devils made it clear they were interested in him.
A day later, the Hayward (Calif.) Stellar Prep defensive back committed to Arizona State and he said he's so thrilled he had to make sure it was real.
"It was so unreal when they offered," Thomas said. "I had to make sure I wasn't dreaming."

The 6-foot, 185-pound prospect who looked good at the RCS Los Angeles earlier this spring said he's been in a lot of contact with Arizona State co-defensive coordinator Chris Ball and so he was excited to show off his skills at Thursday's camp.
After the workout, Ball told Thomas to get in touch with him on Friday - that's when the offer was presented and the Stellar Prep standout quickly snatched it up.
The Northern California prospect said he felt no need to wait any longer.
"The camp was (Thursday), it was a one-day camp in Richmond and I won the safety MVP award," Thomas said.
"I have always been in contact with coach Ball and (Thursday) at the camp he congratulated me and told me to hit him on Facebook (Friday). I hit him up and he asked me to call him and we were talking on the phone and he offered me.
"When he offered, I knew I was going to commit right there. I always got good vibes from all the coaches there during my recruiting."
Thomas has not taken any visits to Arizona State yet but he plans to visit campus for the Sun Devils' junior day next month.
