2001 Media Guide: Thomas Matthews came to Ohio State last fall as a linebacker and was redshirted … was moved to safety early in spring practice and worked his way up to the No. 2 spot on the depth chart at the end of spring ball … is still learning the position but the coaches like what they have seen in a relatively short period of time … is a good athlete, has fine speed and is a physical player … may not get the chance to play a lot this year with Doss in front of him, but will have the opportunity to understudy one of the best in college football … will definitely see action with the special teams.

2000 Season: Impressed the coaches with his speed and agility, but wound up being redshirted.

High School: Built a reputation for his speed and ability to cover sideline-to-sideline … as a senior, had five games with at least 15 tackles … recorded over 100 tackles as a junior … rated the No. 77 linebacker prospect in the nation by Rivals100.com.

Personal: His parents are Geraldine and Thomas Matthews … born Sept. 7, 1981.
