CB Juanyeh Thomas will officially join the Georgia Tech Football program on Wednesday when he signs his letter of intent.
One of the Jackets three signees from the Sunshine State in the 2018 recruiting class, Juanyeh Thomas will be signing his letter of intent on Wednesday. The three-star recruit is considered the 126th best corner in the country along with being one of the top 1,400-players.
Thomas stands at 6-foot-2 and 204-pounds, Thomas is agile and athletic enough to be a solid cornerback at the next level. His 4.49 forty-yard dash is also a rather decent time for a Power Five cornerback.
Despite being rather lowly ranked and not receiving a ton of Power Five programs, the list of P5 programs that did have interest in Thomas is impressive. Schools that showed interest in Thomas include Auburn, Florida, and Mississippi State. Schools that showed interest but never offered included Alabama and Florida State.
Thomas’s full list of offers are the following;
- Alabama State
- Alcorn State
- Appalachian State
- Florida A&M
- Georgia Southern
- Mississippi State
- South Alabama
- Southern Miss
- Wake Forest
For a while, Georgia Tech’s recruitment of Thomas was in the midst of a three-way battle between the Auburn, Florida, and the Jackets. The Niceville, Florida native was showing great interest in the Tigers and the Jackets. While the Gators were in play, it never felt that they had as great of a chance as the Tigers or Jackets.
Thomas was originally offered by the Jackets at the end of Febuary and remained in touch with the Jackets. He took his first unofficial visit to The Flats in July and was a strong enough visit to make the Jackets a serious contender in his recruitment.
After debating with himself between Auburn, Florida, and the Jackets, he committed to Paul Johnson and the Tech program on August 8th. After his commitment, Thomas remained a rather strong commitment but did take a visit to Florida State in November. Tech coach Andy McCollum visited Thomas a week later to reaffirm Thomas’s commitment. The Florida native then took his official visit last week.
