5-star Thomas involved in accident

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Clemson five-star commitment Xavier Thomas was involved in a serious car accident in West Virginia, but fortunate to sustain only minor injuries.

The defensive end from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., said via social media on Monday that a deer ran out in front of him and he swerved before hitting a ditch, flipping over and hitting a tree.

Thomas said he was not wearing a seatbelt when the accident occurred.

“Blessed to walk away from this with just bruises and scratches,” Thomas said on Twitter.

Thomas, the nation’s No. 1 defensive prospect, posted pictures of the incident on his Twitter account:
