But he’s pretty sure the Gamecocks could compete for a Sun Belt Conference title, and its ‘supposedly’ one level below. All Thomas sees though is a chance to win a national title, and he’s one of several stellar recruits who have decided they want to be a part of a contender at JSU. Thomas is 6-foot-2, 205 pounds out of Trussville, Ala.
The Gamecocks love the elusive dual-threat signal caller.
“They love how I can make plays,” Thomas told HERO Sports, when asked about what kind of feedback he gets from the JSU staff. “They love I can throw the ball and run the ball and they said when the play breaks down I can make something happen and that’s what they’re looking for. I’m definitely looking forward to going up against big names and getting the OVC championship and national championship in the future.”
Jacksonville State has gone the junior college route for at least three of its recruits, but they are good ones. Also, Memphis (Tenn.) native Delvin Salter is a lineman who is on board with the Gamecocks and has turned some heads. The Gamecocks did get news this week that Salter’s prep teammate at Whitehaven H.S., DT Michael Perry, had stepped back from his commitment to Jacksonville State because he had received offers from Power Five Conference schools and wanted to check them out.
