Video: Thomas shows speed, balance & vision
Don't judge Carlton Thomas by his size. He may be a 5-foot-7, 172-pound back athlete, but he plays bigger and stronger than many would think. The Frostproof (Fla.) native has speed to burn, balance to shake and bake in the open field and the vision to find open space. We were down in Florida recently to film this UGA commitment and you can see this exciting Bulldog right here. Don't miss these exclusive video clips.
Prospect: Carlton Thomas
High School: Frostproof (Frostproof, Fla.)
Vitals: 5-7, 172-pounds, 4.43
Offers: Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Iowa, Notre Dame, West Virginia and others.
Favorites: Committed to Georgia
The Skinny: Thomas may not impress everyone when he steps off the bus, but his play on the field says it all. He is very quick, shifty, explosive and he has the ability to make a big play anytime from anywhere. Thomas is dangerous with the ball in his hands and he has the ability to make something out of nothing.
He has more strength and power than most think and he likes contact. He will run inside as much as he runs outside, so he does not shy away from the tacklers. He is a versatile athlete that can play running back, slot receiver and return kicks.
We had a camera on him earlier this fall in a big district game and he did not disappoint. He ran for 188 yards on 19 carries and 2 touchdowns on offense. On defense at corner, he had a couple of tackles, an interception (not seen on video) and a fumble recovery that he took back for a touchdown.
Don't miss this exclusive video. Thomas makes plays on both sides of the ball and he shows why so many schools were after him before he decided to be a Bulldog.
