Jemea Thomas deflects questions on NFL

Scott Cunningham

Jemea Thomas doesn't feel its the time or place to be discussing a pro career.

In a season where the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had some success on the football field, perhaps no player on defense stood out more than safety Jemea Thomas.

Thomas, a junior, was a constant force and one of the biggest reasons Paul Johnson and co. are headed to a bowl game. With steady play, Thomas has people talking about whether or not he'll return for his senior season at Georgia Tech, or if the Sun Bowl against USC will be his collegiate swan song.

The youngster finished second on the team in tackles with 82 for the year and tied for a team-high with four interceptions, including a masterpiece of the one-handed variety against Florida State's E.J. Manuel in the ACC Championship Game last weekend.

Normally Thomas could've gotten both hands on the ball, but a shoulder injury wouldn't allow that range of motion to take place, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Thomas said it was "kind of hard to believe how I caught it."
