One thing is certain, new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, isn’t going to let too many of the state’s best prospects leave without a fight.
“Coach [Jeremy] Pruitt has been recruiting me real hard, so I’m starting to build a relationship with him,” Thomas explained. “I got that offer and he wanted to get me up there immediately. He was recruiting me at Florida State, now he’s a Georgia. It’s closer and he wants me up there as much as possible.” (Luke Stampini, 247Sports)
Lawrenceville, GA native, Adonis Thomas, was extended an offer from the Georgia defensive staff on February 16, and they’ve been hot on his trail since that time. Coach Pruitt wants lean, fast, and strong players in his front seven, and Thomas, like a lot of other prospects being targeted in 2015, fits the bill.
At 6-4, 212, Thomas is a bit of a ‘tweener, but with the right program, he could fill out that wiry frame and truly excel as an outside linebacker; he’s not physically imposing at the point of attack, and needs to learn to be a bit more aggressive in one-on-one situations, but the potential is there for him to grow and develop—and the Bulldogs would rather see him do so in a red and black uniform, if at all possible.
“…Before coach (Jeremy) Pruitt got to Georgia, they weren’t really recruiting me but since he has been there they have been recruiting me hard. Georgia and Florida are probably recruiting me the hardest right now.”
