With coaches from Alabama, Ohio State and Florida International in attendance, Tyquan Thornton was one of the highly-regarded prospects camping at FIU on Saturday, and Scout had the cameras rolling to capture all the action.
Thornton, a former Baylor receiver commit from Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington, is in the midst of a breakout offseason after recently accumulating offers from Florida, Miami (Fl), Tennessee and Georgia.
Thornton is a crafty pass catcher who does a good job of winning the battle at the line of scrimmage. He shows patience by setting up the cornerback, and then flashes that burst to gain the advantage down the field. Thornton is very lengthy, and utilizes his frame by tracking and extending out for the ball.
