Matthew Thomas Wants to Go to USC, According to Father

Another interesting development in the Matthew Thomas situation unfurled on Monday evening, when ESPN’s Joe Schad tweeted that Thomas’ father says the Florida State commit does indeed want to attend USC.


Schad continued to tweet that though Thomas’ father claims his son wants out of Florida State, another source close to the situation refutes this notion, and that Thomas has not informed the university of any intentions to leave.


Interesting, as Thomas has been seeking a release from the Seminoles since May, and has publicly stated since February that signing with them was not his decision in the first place.

Schad also tweeted that his other source says “outside influences” are impacting Thomas’s desire to leave FSU, a reality that has yet to come to fruition as the university has not yet decided whether to grant him a release.

On that matter, Thomas’ dad made it clear where he and his family now stand:


In speaking with Schad, Thomas’s father also explained that his son did not want to disappoint his mom so he signed with FSU, but now, “it’s about traditions. And surroundings. And excitement,” he told ESPN.

For that, Thomas wants to fulfill his original intention of becoming a Trojan.
