GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Georgia Tech junior outfielder Brandon Thomas was named to the Capital One Academic All-America second team, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America on Friday.

The five-tool junior, who among Baseball America’s top 100 prospects entering next week’s Major League Baseball Draft, also has 12 stolen bases and is among the ACC leaders with a .478 on-base percentage.

A native of Atlanta and graduate of Pace Academy, Thomas is a management major who maintains a 3.66 grade point average.
