Ian Thomas leaving Rutgers a second time

Last October, part-time starting cornerback Ian Thomas abruptly announced that he was leaving the Rutgers football team to start a career in baseball or because he was homesick depending on who you listened too.  He returned this offseason on a conditional basis and participated in spring practice.

A couple of months later, however, Thomas is again gone.

“Ian did not report back for the summer program,” head coach Kyle Flood said, “and I would just leave it at that.”

Thomas had started three of the six games in which he’s played in 2013 before leaving the first time. He was a three-star member of the Scarlet Knights’ 2012 recruiting class.

    There’s obviously a major issue with this kid being away from home. Just play at a school close to home.
