5-star Thomas: "Best college game I have ever been to"


One of the nation’s top 2018 prospects, Xavier Thomas visited Death Valley Saturday night to watch Clemson defeat Louisville.

“I really enjoyed it.  It was the best college game I have ever been to,” Thomas told The Clemson Insider.

Xavier thought the outcome was a surprise to many.

“Nobody expected Clemson to win and they pulled through,” said Thomas.

During the visit Xavier got to spend time with two other 2018 top ten national prospects, Trevor Lawrence and Zamir White.

“It was great.  They are really cool guys,” said Thomas.

The All-American went further with his comments about White and Lawrence.

“We could be future teammates,” said Thomas.

Xavier plans to be back in Death Valley again this season.

“Oh yeah, most definitely.  I will be back for the South Carolina game definitely,” said Thomas.
