Todd Graham and Arizona State landed another 2017 commit, this time in the form of three-star safety Ty Thomas from Lubbock, Texas. Thomas was originally committed to Oklahoma State but changed his mind after visiting Tempe last weekend. He announced his decision on Twitter.

Thomas said he wanted to "check out every school that gives me the opportunity to play" when he decided to take his visit.
Thomas also had offers from Arkansas, Texas Tech and West Virginia. Scout.com ranks Thomas as the No. 44 safety in the country and No. 7 in Texas. He is the seventh recruit in Graham's 2017 class so far and fifth in the last week.
Thomas' dad, Bart, played at Texas Tech with his uncle, eight-time Pro Bowler Zac Thomas.
He plans on enrolling in January so as to participate in spring practice. Just a reminder that all commitments at this time are non-binding until prospects sign on the dotted line in early February (or in Thomas' case, in the fall).
Here are highlights from Thomas' junior season.
