“He’s interested in Brian being a wide receiver for Alabama,” said Walker High Principal Jason St. Pierre.

Thomas also plays basketball for the school and was named MVP of the 5-A basketball state championship last year.

“It’s exciting when a major college coach comes on your campus to recruit one of your athletes,” St. Pierre said. “Everyone wants to be seen by Alabama and Nick Saban.”

Thomas was a WAFB Sportsline Player of the Week for football in September of 2018.
