Virginia Tech Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas entered the 2012-13 college football season with a lot of hype surrounding him and he was considered one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft class.
Unfortunately for Thomas, things haven’t gone quite as planned. As a result, Thomas plans to return to Virginia Tech for his senior season in an effort to fine tune his skills.
“I’ve always told everybody that I’m planning on coming back for my last one,” Thomas said, via CBS Sports. “So there’s no change in that right now.”
Thomas had ten interceptions all of last season and has matched that total with a few games yet to play. While his interception total will surpass last season’s, Thomas still believes that he is making progress as a passer.
“Last year you go back and look at my games, and I’m throwing the ball off-balance, side-armed and Jarrett [Boykin] and Danny [Coale] are making great catches,” he said. “I feel much more improved in reading the defense, stepping up in the pocket and delivering the ball.
“Last year I was ready to tuck it and run halfway through my read and this year I’ll go through them all. If taking a sack happens, it happens. But that’s just how you improve as a quarterback. And you don’t see really any quarterbacks in the NFL tucking and running every other play, every other dropback. So as a quarterback, that’s where you need to progress.”
