Atlanta Wide Out Will Be Major Target
"Thomas may be the one of the top two wide receivers we have seen," says one SEC coach. "He is so smooth. He is advanced so much that he makes things look easy. He could also play corner in college because he is that athletic. We love Carlos Thomas."
In a year that is considered strong at wide receiver both in the South and in South Carolina, it is a Peach State wide out that has more than one college coach raving about his skills. Carlos Thomas of Banneker High School in Atlanta, GA is a player we saw in camp this summer and we would agree. This is a smooth athlete that looks like he has difference-maker potential. Usually the bigger, taller wide outs get the attention at camp and the trend to bigger receivers is still there but Thomas is a throwback.
Clemson has already landed a big receiver commitment from Rendrick Taylor, and would love to add the services of Carlos Thomas to the class.
"I have offers from Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Clemson, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, LSU, and Oklahoma," says Thomas. This is a receiver with blazing speed, clocking 4.25 forty.
There is much speculation with Thomas about him being a package deal with former Clemson commitment Ramon "Ray Ray" McElrathbey. "I would not say we are a package deal, but we would like to play together. Right now, Ray Ray is favoring Clemson and Florida, I like both schools, but in the end we will have to wait and see how everything works out."
Thomas has set the standard very high for his season. "I am at 180 right now, but I would like to bulk up to 190 for the season. I want to have 1000 yards receiving and rushing."
The All-American is being recruited by Coach Burton Burns and attended the passing camp at Clemson. "I enjoyed the atmosphere. It was a real nice place. I liked spending time with Coach Burns and Coach Swinney."
Thomas has not decided on what he will major in, and has not taken the SAT yet. He is a player who we will certainly keep our eye during the season, along with Ray Ray McElrathbey and the idea of a potential package deal.
