Kentavious Thomas 2015 Spotlight

Before their senior seasons of high school, large numbers of football recruits all across America are always faced with tough decisions. For example which skills camps to attend, whether or not to do 7 on 7 and so on. Grades from scouting organizations are an additional tool that recruits tend to look at to see how they measure up against other players in their recruiting class. The numbers and grades given to recruits, in some cases, drive the young man to perform at his highest level and take care of business for the upcoming season.

Kentavious Thomas out of Milledgeville, GA is a talented running back that will catch people’s eye with how he runs the ball. Thomas is a tough, physical running back with the ability to break away in the open field. Thomas will rarely go down with the first hit and he will keep his legs moving and churning to the tune of 1,104 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns while racking up another 594 yards worth of receiving this past season. Thomas has set the stage for what should be a solid senior season at Baldwin High School this fall.

Thomas is a recruit that I have been watching for about a year and his film is very impressive. He is a young man that is a student of the game and is constantly looking for ways to get better and improve his performance. Mississippi State has landed a solid recruit, with Thomas already giving a verbal commitment to the Bulldogs for the 2015 class. Thomas has the potential to be a big name by National Signing Day of 2015 and he is a recruit to keep an eye on during the 2014 season. Thomas does plan on making some visits to other schools, “just to check the other schools” but his current plans are to stay with the Bulldogs. What attracted Thomas to Mississippi State was, “the way Mississippi State sets things up for the players and the offense they run it’s a great place to be.” The Bulldogs have done a good job evaluating talent. Thomas is just one standout for what should be a solid group of talented players for the 2015 class.
