Mount Carmel’s Alek Thomas commits to TCU for baseball, football – Chicago Tribune

Mount Carmel junior Alek Thomas had to stop himself from laughing at the thought of playing three sports in college.

Thomas, a three-sport starter in football, basketball and baseball for the Caravan, went on an unofficial visit to Texas Christian in late January. While in Fort Worth, Thomas, who was mulling offers from numerous schools to play football and baseball, made an unscheduled trip to a TCU basketball game.

“I visited the football side and the baseball side and I also caught a basketball game, too,” Thomas said, laughing. “But I don’t plan on playing basketball.”

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Thomas, a quarterback, center fielder and guard, committed to TCU via Twitter on Friday. Without divulging his full list, Thomas said he “had a lot of offers.”
