Tigers coach Josh Pastner got Thomas' mother, Sandra Anderson, and his father, Eric Thomas, to agree to a 12 a.m. in-home visit from Pastner and assistants Jack Murphy and Willis Wilson on Thursday at Anderson's house.
The significance of 12 a.m.? Thursday was the first day of the contact period for NCAA college coaches, and Pastner wanted to be the first one through Thomas' door this morning.
"He wanted to be the first one, you know, because Adonis is first priority," Eric Thomas said. "He said at 12:01, he'd be there and that he wanted to be there. Me and his mom said, 'OK.' He said he was going to be there and they were there."
