“I’m ready to win”

Crusader commits to Michigan


When all the college offers were coming at senior Ambry Thomas he was overwhelmed. As a Crusader, Thomas has played receiver, corner, safety, punt-returner, and kick-returner which culminated into 41 offers.  On Dec. 7, he committed to the University of Michigan.

“It was just hard and probably a week ago I started leaning towards Michigan a little bit more,” said Thomas. “I was still in contact with Michigan State coaches.  That is what made the decision hard, but I knew what I had to do.”

When entering college, most athletes want an opportunity to play their freshman year.  This was one of the factors that helped sway Thomas’ decision.

“I chose the life of Michigan because I know I’ll be set,” said Thomas. “They have a great coaching staff, and I know I could play early there.”

The rivalry between the Spartans and Wolverines isn’t important to Thomas, but the stats are.

“They’re winning,” said Thomas. “They know what they’re doing, and I’m ready to win.”

Thomas was to report to Michigan on Jan. 2 but he will not report until Jan. 9 because he is in the Army All-American Bowl which is Jan. 7 in San Antonio.  The entire King family is happy about Thomas’ accomplishments. 

“With Ambry Thomas, you’re getting an incredible athlete, you’re getting a great person, a kid that’s serious and focused on winning,” said head coach Tyrone Spencer.  “Somebody that’s going to have great success, and they’re confident in their ability. So I think with all those combinations it moves that success, and he’ll have a great time up there.”
