April has been kind to the Florida State football program.
The Seminoles have experienced a recruiting rush like any other in recent memory picking up verbal commitments from defensive stars Nick Moody, Vincent Williams, Nigel Carr, C.J. Holton and Nigel Bradham.
Now, an offensive playmaker has finally been added to the list of commitments for the Seminoles' 2008 class. Jacksonville native Jermaine Thomas announced Monday night that he wants to play for FSU, his childhood favorite.
Thomas, a 6-foot, 190-pound tailback from First Coast High rushed for over 900 yards and posted 12 touchdowns as a junior a season ago. He is the high school teammate of Carr.
"The thing about Jermaine is he's just so fast," First Coast coach Fred Culver told GamecockAnthem.com earlier this month. "His speed is unbelievable. He has exceptional speed, and I've clocked him in the 4.3's (in the forty yard dash.) People don't believe it, so I always say consistent 4.4's. When you see him on the field, he plays at a very fast speed like he's a 4.1 or 4.2 kid.
"Jermaine is special. He can catch the ball. He's got good ball skills, and when the ball's in his hands, he's unbelievable. He's a difference maker. He's another-gear guy."
