Xavier Thomas will announce on his birthday

Five-star defensive end Xavier Thomas of Bradenton (FL) IMG announced via Twitter Friday night that he will make his college decision on his birthday, Dec. 20th.

Thomas, the No. 1 overall player for the 2018 recruiting cycle, is also an early enrollee and will enroll at either Clemson or South Carolina - his final two choices - in January.

Thomas has national offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, South Carolina, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, and Wake Forest.

Thomas discussed his outlook on both schools last week.

“We have the opportunity — I talked to Zamir White, and Trevor [Lawrence], of course Trevor’s already committed there,” Thomas said via sbnation.com about Clemson. “Me and Zamir talked how we could have one of the best classes to ever go there, top three players in the country, [could] have a very special class going there.”

Thomas said that South Carolina was his dream school growing up but it has been in heavy turmoil since former Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier abandoned the program midseason.

“I would have been committed, if all that wouldn’t had happened,” Thomas said. “That was my dream school. But they went down in a ditch and Coach Muschamp’s trying to bring it back up, so I’m looking to see what they’re doing.”
