DE Jhaustin Thomas (6-7 275) of Trinity Valley JC, TX, who signed with USC for the 2012 class but failed to qualify, is back on the Gamecocks’ commitment list for 2014.
Thomas told TheBigSpur.com he talked with defensive line coach Deke Adams Tuesday night and was assured he is wanted even if he doesn’t graduate until next spring. Thomas said he had been hearing from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Ole Miss and Arizona State.
He only played in three games last season due to an injury. He’s put on some size in junior college. He was listed at 6-6, 240 coming out of high school.
He’s the 8th commitment for USC’s 2014 class.
