Matthew Thomas Will Attend FSU After All

TALLAHASSEE — One day after his father said he was still trying to reject Florida State in favor of heading to USC, five-star linebacker Matthew Thomas issued a statement Tuesday night saying he was headed to FSU after all.

In the statement only provided to, a affiliated website that covers FSU athletics and recruiting, Thomas confirmed that he wanted to honor his previous commitment to play for the Seminoles. The Miami native will report to Tallahassee this Saturday with the rest of FSU’s 2013 signing class for orientation and the start of summer workouts.
