Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas decided on the last possible day to declare for the 2013 NFL Draft that he will return to Virginia Tech for the 2013 season as a senior. Thomas entered the 2012 season with high expectations but struggled through a disappointing season. The 6 foot 6 inch quarterback threw 16 interceptions to just 18 touchdowns last season.
Speaking to ESPN, Thomas said he felt like he had some unfinished business at Virginia Tech and that spurred his decision. “I will be staying at Virginia Tech, returning for my senior year. I think I have a lot to work on. I think we can get better. Leaving a program 7-6, especially a program like Virginia Tech– we have a legacy of winning a lot of games- kind of let a bad taste in my mouth. I want to come back and have a better season this year.”
Thomas has been compared by several analysts to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, largely due to his physical size. He saw his interceptions increase as his completion percentage dropped in 2012. He completed just 51.3% of his passes for 2,976 yards.
