Thomas, who would have gone into his junior year with the Crimson Tide golf program, was named to the American team last week for the September matches at the National Golf Links of America in New York.

The 20-year-old is currently ranked No. 4 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.

Thomas will pursue several playing opportunities ahead of trying to earn Web.com Tour status for 2014 through the revamped Q-school process.

In June, Thomas played in the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour on an exemption. He made the cut, finishing T-30 for his best PGA Tour result in three starts. In 2009 at the age of 16, Thomas became the fifth-youngest player to make a PGA Tour cut, doing so at the Wyndham Championship.
