Recent South Carolina decommit Rodarius Thomas flips to SEC West school
The SEC West continues to scoop up former South Carolina commitments.
This time it’s Rodarius Thomas of Eufaula, Alabama, who announced on Twitter that he has committed to play at Mississippi State. Thomas is a 3-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite, and listed at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds.
Thomas’ announcement follows Jayden Johnson of Cedartown, Georgia, another former South Carolina commit who last week committed to Arkansas.
Thomas is rated the No. 134 overall receiver in the nation and the No. 37 overall prospect from Alabama in the 2021 recruiting cycle.
Thomas was the first South Carolina commit to decommit following the firing of coach Will Muschamp. When he announced the decision, he wrote on social media, “I want to thank the Gamecocks for supporting me these few months and especially for the opportunity to play at South Carolina. I would like to thank the coaches for recruiting me and believing in me. With that being said, I will be decommitting from the University of South Carolina,” Thomas posted online. “I have thought long and hard about my decision and I feel it is best for me to open my recruitment back up and continue on my journey playing the game I love.”
He has a reported 10 offers, but South Carolina and Mississippi State are the only offers from SEC schools. Thomas gives MSU 21 commits in the 2021 class, which is ranked No. 24 in the country and No. 9 in the SEC according to 247Sports.
