Former Minnesota CB announces he's grad transferring to Big 12 program
A former Minnesota cornerback has announced that he will be headed to the Big 12 to complete his college football career.
Monday, Kiondre Thomas sent out a note on Twitter, announcing his plans to transfer to Kansas State. He leaves the Golden Gophers after spending the last four years in Minneapolis. He played in 32 career games while with Minnesota.
“I’d like to thank Coach Fleck and the entire defensive staff for everything they’ve done for me from helping develop into a better player to an even better person,” Thomas wrote. “And with that being said I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be playing my final year at Kansas State University.”

Thomas appeared in all 13 games for the Gophers last season, making four starts. He collected 22 tackles, three pass break-ups and an interception in Minnesota’s secondary, as the team finished with an 11-2 record, including a win over Auburn in the Outback Bowl.
In his previous two seasons, Thomas appeared in 19 games and made four starts. He totaled 55 tackles with four pass break-ups and a fumble recovery in the 2017 and 2018 campaigns at Minnesota. As a freshman in 2016, Thomas utilized his redshirt season and did not see any game action.
Thomas has one season of eligibility remaining and will be immediately eligible to play at Kansas State in the 2020 season.
