Per Vardeman’s report, via OU Daily:
Thomas was ticketed by Grady police for speeding in July. Court records show he was going 94 mph in a 75 mph zone.
Thomas owes $321.50 for the ticket and subsequent fees as of Dec. 13.
Prior to being jailed, Thomas recorded 46 tackles and grabbed five interceptions for the No. 4-ranked Sooners, who face No. 1-ranked Clemson in the Orange Bowl. The winner gets the winner of the Cotton Bowl–either No. 2-ranked Alabama or No. 3-ranked Michigan State.
Thomas had two interceptions during Oklahoma’s regular-season ending 58-23 win over Oklahoma State. Back in October, he picked off two passes during the Sooners’ 44-24 win over West Virginia. He posted a season-high six tackles twice, doing so against Tennessee and Oklahoma State.
He made four tackles during victories over Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU and Kansas. He made four tackles during Oklahoma’s 24-17 loss to Texas.
According to Vardeman, Thomas, a 6’1,” 194-pound DB out of Klein, Texas, was suspended for Oklahoma’s game versus Tulsa due to an unspecified violation of team rules.
