Thomas’ announcement came on the heels of 4-star cornerback Jamyest Williams naming Ohio State among the schools in his lead group. The Buckeyes have the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class for 2017, and the future continues to look bright.
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound lineman is rated as the nation’s No. 3 overall prospect for the Class of 2018 and the No. 2 defensive end prospect in the country.
