Brian Thomas Jr.. 17. player. 817. . WR. Tigers

  • High School: Walker (Walker, LA)
  • Composite Rankings: No. 79, No. 13 WR

One of the best two-sport athletes in the nation, Brian Thomas Jr., is one to watch an eye on as early National Signing Day approaches. After tearing up the gridiron and hardwood for Walker in Louisiana, the wide receiver has received offers from both sports.

It’s one thing to be a two-sport athlete, but to receive offers from power-five conferences at both sports shows the kind of special talent the wide receiver is. At 6-foot-4 Thomas Jr. is a big weapon that can be an elite receiver.

He possesses great hands and an ability to make the spectacular catch. He has number one receiver written all over him. He will outlast smaller defenders for the ball and is a nightmare to defend in jump ball situations.

The belief is that Thomas will stay in state and commit to LSU. While the Tigers have had a down year following a National Championship, they are sure to be restocking the cupboard and bringing in impact players that can make a difference right away.

Thomas Jr. fits that mold and will be exciting to watch wherever he does end up committing. It’s hard to see anyone taking him from the Tigers, but Alabama and Georgia could be two to watch as one would expect.

Prediction: LSU
