The Thomas family has been very good to Dave Doeren and NC State football—Thayer is one of the offense’s top playmakers, while Drake is a key part of the linebacking corps. Their younger brother, Lex, committed to NC State on Friday evening.
He put together a pretty fancy commitment video for the occasion, too. And not surprisingly, his brothers feature prominently.
Lex Thomas is a rising junior and a member of the 2023 class. He is NC State’s first verbal commitment for ‘23. The Pack’s coaches got to see his talents firsthand when he camped in Raleigh back in June. It’s not exactly a shocker that State was the first power-conference school to offer.
Thomas is listed at 5’11 and 176 pounds by 247Sports. He doesn’t have a composite ranking yet—I think it’s a little early for that still—but 247 has him as a three-star prospect and a top-10 player in North Carolina.
