National Signing Day is always a treat, and Wednesday night got off to a great start thanks to four-star recruit Solomon Thomas. The Coppell High School standout announced that he will be spending his time at the collegiate level with the Stanford Cardinal, but he did so in a unique way.

Rather than pulling out the traditional hat and smiling into the camera, Thomas decided to pull out a tree and throw on some “nerd” glasses to show off his Stanford pride.

You can watch his announcement in the video below:

Thomas decided to pick Stanford over UCLA and Arkansas, and now the Cardinal class has received a boost from one of the top defensive ends in this year’s class.
