KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Farragut running back Tanner Thomas made his college commitment Tuesday night, verbally committing to play football for Columbia.

The senior running back ran for more than 1,500 yards and scored more than 20 touchdowns as a junior.

“I take my academics very serious, but also I take my football seriously as well,” said Thomas. “I think it’s important to balance those two, and I got blessed to get an offer from an Ivy League school, so I guess it was best to take advantage of that.”

Thomas and the Admirals will take the field August 21 against Powell.
