Matthew Thomas wanted to go to USC, but mom wouldn't sign LOI

161

Josh Newberg: At what point did you know you were going to sign with Florida State? Matthew Thomas: Well I decided that morning (Signing Day). The night before I was honestly thinking USC. I was trying to get the LOI and everything ready and signed first. But my mom didn't want to sign it. She didn't want me to go to USC. JN: So if your mom would have signed the papers you'd be a Trojan right now? MT: Yeah, I would have been a Trojan. JN: Are you upset about that? MT: No I think everything works out how it's supposed to. I'm going to make the best of my situation. It's not like I'm unhappy, I really like Florida State. It's not a problem, I'm happy with my decision. JN: Tell me more about you and your mom's discussion. Did it get heated when she wouldn't sign the LOI? MT: No we just talked and stuff. We couldn't agree, but it's my mom, I just did what I had to do. JN: What was your feeling after your signing ceremony? MT: I had butterflies. I was like, 'wow I really just did it'.
