With His Position Coach Gone To WKU, Cartrell Thomas' Talks Commitment Status

Dynamic playmaker Cartrell Thomas gave a verbal pledge to Boise State back in early November, but there have been some changes since then, mainly wide receiver coach Junior Adams leaving the Broncos for Western Kentucky. Has that had an impact on Thomas' commitment?

BroncoCountry caught up with Cartrell Thomas, the Lancaster (Texas) three-star recruit, on Tuesday, and verified that he remains fully committed to the blue and orange.

“I committed to the university,” he said. “They want me to come in and make an impact early in my career.”


Thomas, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound prospect, chose the Broncos over offers from the likes of Utah, Texas Tech, Colorado, Illinois, and San Diego State. He mentioned a strong relationship with head coach Bryan Harsin as one of the reasons for his pledge.

“I love what Coach Harsin brings to the table as a head coach,” Thomas said. “They called me every day once they offered me, just checking on me and telling me what I can do at Boise. They love what I can bring to the table.”

Thomas says he likes to pattern his game after Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown.

“He’s not the biggest wide receiver, but he steps up to any challenge,” he said. “I like that about him.”

That said, Thomas is sure his Dallas Cowboys are going all the way.

“The Cowboys are winning the Super Bowl,” he said!

Thomas has his official visit to Boise State scheduled for Jan. 20. With the dead period coming to a close, recruiting is ramping up and Bronco coaches are excited to have Thomas, a big piece in their class, as solid as ever.

(Edit: Thomas, in fact, received a visit from Boise State today, just posting the following to twitter.)
