FORT SMITH (KFSM)- Northside's Kiondre Thomas had a change of heart when it came to school's, but he is confident now that he has made the right choice. The cornerback has had several offers and even committed to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in May of 2015. But, following his commitment he received offers from two Power 5 schools, Minnesota being one. After an official visit Kiondre Thomas decided to be a Gopher over being a Bulldog.
