Thomas had a career-high three tackles in the Huskers' win over Bethune-Cookman, with each stop coming from his linebacking spot. He also added the first pass breakup of his career vs. BCU.
Thomas was a potential candidate to play as a true freshman, but he ultimately redshirted in his first season at Nebraska.
