Clemson Tigers defensive end Xavier Thomas is asking for help after his car was stolen.
The rising sophomore tweeted pictures of his 2017 Ford Explorer, and he asked Twitter followers to keep an eye out for the vehicle after he says it was stolen from The Villages at Town Creek Apartments near the Clemson campus.
“TWITTER I NEED YOU,” Thomas wrote in a series of tweets. “Please be on the lookout for anyone driving or a parked 2017 Ford Explorer. My car was stolen last night around 1 am in Pendleton, SC in Town Creek Villages. Video showed 4 black females in a grey honda accord going through the whole neighborhoods vehicles.
“Please contact me through here or 911 if you see my vehicle. My daughters clothes, carseat, my school work and laptop was in the car including other items. Please help me out so I can get my behicle back and take these convicts down to prevent this happening to anyone else! It is a burnt orange color with black tires and rims and all black tinted windows. These looked like older looking woman in their late 20s and early 30s who looked experienced.”
Thomas’ girlfriend also tweeted that police had come by the apartment complex to view security footage.

As a true freshman, Thomas played all 15 games during Clemson’s undefeated run to a national championship victory over Alabama. The former 247Sports Composite No. 3 overall player in the class of 2018 made 35 tackles, and he was fourth on the team in tackles for loss (10.5). With the departure of NFL draft picks Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant, Thomas is expected to step into a larger role for the Tigers this fall.
Thomas’ presence on the Clemson roster is a significant reason why the Tigers landed in our top 10 ranking for the nastiest defensive lines in college football entering the 2019 season.
As a recruit out of IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.), Thomas was rated as a 247Sports Composite five-star prospect. The Tigers defensive lineman is also listed among ESPN’s breakout sophomore players for next season.
