4-Star RB Receiving Plenty of SEC Interest

2015 4-star RB Kentavious Thomas (5’11, 205, 4.5) of Baldwin (GA) is receiving plenty of SEC recruiting attention, fresh off a junior campaign that consisted of 1057 yards rushing with 21 TDs. He also posted 694 yards receiving.

The junior standout is among the best, if not THE best, at running back yet to be offered in next year’s class. However, things are starting to pick up for him on the recruiting front.

Thomas told Varsity Preps he’s hearing from Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi St.Florida St.CincinnatiEast CarolinaNebraska, and Arizona.

Here’s what he had to say about the programs recruiting him.

Alabama: “Bama is definitely coming on strong and I hear from them frequently. They say that I’m one of their targets for next year at running back.”

Auburn: “The staff has invited to every home game this season. I’m trying to get over to their game this weekend.”

Kentucky: “They want me to take an unofficial visit up there. Most of the communication with them is through my coach.”

Florida: “The Gators aren’t coming as hard as everyone else, but I know they’re looking at me.”

Georgia: “I have a good connection there and they really like me. The staff has invited me to several games,” he said. “I attended the Georgia/LSU in Athens. It was a great atmosphere to be a part of. Before the game, I was taken around campus and got to see the facilities.”

Mississippi St: “The staff is sending a lot mail, more than anyone else. They’ve invited me to a couple of games, but it’s difficult for me to get over there. I haven’t been able to speak with them yet, but judging by what’s going on now, I think they’ll be the first to offer.”

Florida St.: “They send a lot of emails and letters, but everything is starting to come heavy from FSU now. I’ve been invited to a few games but I was unable to attend.”

East Carolina: “The staff speaks with my coach often. He tells me they want me really bad, that I’m their No. 1 target at running back,” Thomas said. “That situation sounds good, so I’m going to try to visit unofficially soon.”

Thomas feels like AlabamaGeorgia, and Mississippi St. are recruiting him the hardest, but he remains open and doesn’t list any favorites currently.

His offseason plans include attending the Nike and Rivals.com combines. He also plans to attend camps at Dawg NiteAuburnAlabama, and Florida.

The talented junior will run track to stay in shape, participating in the 200M, 4x100M, and 4x400M.
