“I’ll be back at the top in 1 1/2 Years, I can promise that.” – Kyle Thomas
Kyle Thomas (SR DE/DT 6-3 260) spent 2017 feeling at the top of his game. After his senior season, he earned a First Team All-Region 6A selection and a Second Team All-State Class 6 selection as a defensive lineman.
Division I coaches offered scholarships, including Rutgers, Norfolk State, Coastal Carolina, Apppalachian State, Buffalo, East Carolina, Towson, James Madison, and Morgan State.
Instead of moving on to play Division I ball this fall, Kyle will play junior college ball at ASA College in New York.
“It’s an new beginning for me. I can go there and have a fresh start with academics and athletics,” said Thomas. “I will fit good in their system. They have eight-man rotation.”
ASA runs a 4-3 defense, and that allows Kyle to play defensive end or defensive tackle.
After playing two seasons at Junior College, Thomas will reset his recruitment and look to find the best fit for finishing his college football career.
