I interviewed Darien Thomas recently. Darien is a WR verbal from Theodore HS in Alabama who is pumped to be a Wildcat. He is a 3* recruit who also told me that when he came to the UK Camp that he knew that he wanted to play here.
Darien said that he wanted to play early in his college career (as a freshman) and thought that UK would give him that opportunity. He grew up a fan of Chad "Ocho Cinco" and also liked the Saints.
Thomas stated that he either wants to major in Business, Psychologhy or Mechanical Engineering. Like many other players, Darien recently took the ACT and is awaiting the results.
Darien said that in addition to WR, he will also be playing Safety, PR, and KR, and basically does not plan on coming off of the field for his senior season. His Brother, Demetrius plays for Marshall. so he was familiar with how recruiting worked and was excited for the opportunity.
Darien currently runs a sub 4.5 in the 40 yard and will be working hard on techinique until he gets on campus in Lexington.
