Thomas transferred to Montana State in 2022 after five seasons with Kentucky.

He joins his former teammate, MSU tight end Treyton Pickering, in receiving a minicamp invite. Pickering announced on Saturday he got an invite with the New York Giants.

No players from the Bobcats or the Montana Grizzlies were drafted, and none have signed rookie free-agent contracts as of Tuesday night.

Thomas' tryout invitation was reported by the Montana State football program via its X account.
