Matthew Thomas comes clean about his recruitment

USA TODAY Sports

Hey all you AG haters out there, decrying the fact once Golden "took away" Kirkland's scholarship, the door closed on any chance Thomas would come to Coral Gables. Yeah, it's time to shut up. Thomas speaks about how he was going to USC, and Miami never had a real chance. Behold, and insert the foot into your mouth in the comments, if you please.

Some excerpts:

Josh Newberg: At what point did you know you were going to sign with Florida State?
Matthew Thomas: Well I decided that morning (Signing Day). The night before I was honestly thinking USC. I was trying to get the LOI and everything ready and signed first. But my mom didn't want to sign it. She didn't want me to go to USC.

JN: What was your mindset before the Denver Kirkland drama? Were you leaning toward Miami at that point?
MT: No not really. I wanted to get away from home, I never really wanted to stay home.

JN: James Coley recruited you at FSU for almost two years before taking a job at Miami. Was it hard to tell him that you weren't going to Miami?
MT: I think he already knew. When he was recruiting me at Florida State he asked me if Miami had a chance and I was like, 'not really'. I don't think he thought anything was going to change when he went to Miami.
