Glades Central QB L.J. Thomas commits to Hampton 

By Jason Lieser

Glades Central’s L.J Thomas, the area’s best quarterback last season, appears to have found a collegiate home.

Thomas committed to Hampton, which is the only school to offer him a scholarship at this point.

“It feels good to know there’s a school out there that really wants me,” Thomas said. “They came and talked to me yesterday and said I’m the only quarterback they’re recruiting now. I think I’ll be a good fit in their offense.”

Thomas (6-2, 175, No. 38 on The Big Board) plans to take an official visit in January.

He has had several conversations with Florida International and an offer could still materialize, but Thomas said his commitment to Hampton is “solid.”

Thomas is the fifth Raider to commit this season, joining DB Travis Bell (West Virginia), DB/WR Greg Dent (Miami), TE Clive Walford (Miami) and DB/RB Antwon Chisholm (Mississippi State).
