Countdown to NSD - 13 days

Georgia has 29 commitments and has zeroed in on their last few targets. You could make an argument that Richt and staff have a reasonable chance at any or all of the following: Tunsil, Foster, Adams, Kamara, Johnson, and Bellamy.

But there's also a guy who will make his final visit in Athens on February 1st - Matthew Thomas out of Booker T. Washington in Miami FL. He's an edge pass rusher and playmaker, super fast and quick as lightning. At 6'4" and 210 pounds many wonder if he might end up at safety or even wide receiver. But there's no question he can play at the next level, right where he's been wreaking havoc in high outside linebacker.

Thomas went out to Southern California last weekend and has already been to Alabama. He was on Miami's campus yesterday and hits FSU this weekend, which is where many believe he will end up. Whoever gets him will have a heck of a player with incredible closing speed.
