Welcome to our series chronicling the #22Bullies (The New South Florida) USF recruiting class of 2022. The series will breakdown every single recruit and transfer that signed/committed to officially become a part of Head Coach Jeff Scott’s third recruiting class. Help us welcome WR Javohn Thomas to the Bulls!
WR Javohn Thomas (Sickles High School)
Committed to the Bulls since March 12th, Thomas represents the only scholarship receiver added in the 2022 class with several new additions through the transfer portal and/or walk-ons. Thomas is currently ranked as the 149th best receiver in the 2022 class by 247Sports.com, garnering offers from FIU and South Dakota during his recruitment. Thomas will be joining the Bulls on football scholarship but will also play basketball for the school when he enrolls at the school in the summer.
According to MaxPreps, Javohn Thomas finished his HS career with 67 receptions over 1,089 yards and 11 TDs.
Run the Tape:
Tall, athletic receiver who will surprise you with his ability to pick up yards after the catch. Sells routes well to gain additional separation from the defense. Does a good catch of catching away from his body. Big frame will pose a problem for smaller defensive backs. Can work the entire route tree, not just limited to deep shots down the field. Multi-sport athlete who can utilize his skills/traits on the basketball court and transition them to the football field at the next level.
The multi-sport star out of Sickles HS was the first commit to the 2022 recruiting class and from the very beginning, you started to see the potential that Thomas has to be a good one at the next level. With the influx of receivers to the position group from the transfer portal, it will be interesting to see how the true freshman factors in right away, but mark my words, Thomas has the ceiling to be great if developed properly. Welcome to the Bulls Javohn!
