2015 RB Kentavious Thomas (5’11, 200, 4.42) of Baldwin High in Georgia doesn’t claim any offers, but reports interest from Ole Miss, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, LSU, FloridaMiami, Virginia, Cincinnati, Michigan, Nebraska, Georgia St., and Troy.

Thomas does have interest in the Hurricanes.

He attended several summer camps, including Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Presbyterian. Thomas talked about each experience.

“I performed well at Auburn. I ran most drills with the first team guys there. RB coach Tim Horton said he’d heard about me and he told me he liked what he saw.

Georgia’s camp was a good experience. I spoke with the staff there and they want me to visit this fall to see a couple of games.

“We went to a 7-on-7 camp at Georgia Tech, and the Tech coaches pulled me and our quarterback out to speak to us. After the tour of campus, the staff was telling me they want me to visit this fall for some games and get a closer look at what they have to offer.

“We also went to the Presbyterian 7-on-7 and we did really well there. I had 10 touchdowns during camp.”

Thomas feels Georgia and Georgia Tech will offer in the near future.

“I think Georgia might offer first because they’re doing a good job of staying in touch with me, but I also think Georgia Tech will end up offering.”

The junior running back acknowledged he’s been concentrating on increasing his agility and making it more difficult for would-be tacklers to bring him down.

“I really improved my speed and cutting ability and I’ve developed a jump cut. I just practiced cutting over the summer and I believe it’s going to help me this season.”

Thomas believes the young Baldwin squad has matured and is ready to compete at a high level.

“I expect we’ll be good. Everybody’s bonded, we’re all working hard. Our quarterback is on point, his game is where it needs to be for us to be successful, the offensive line looks good, and the defensive line is working the hardest and they’ll be better,” he said. “I think we’re capable of a state championship run. I believe we’ll prove a lot of people wrong this year.”
