64 Days to Kickoff! - Justin Thomas-Thornton

As we continue our march to kickoff, we take a look at the top 100 recruits to sign with Auburn of all-time*. The rankings are based on 247’s composite recruit rankings, which unfortunately only date back to 2000.

Justin Thomas-Thornton was a consensus 4* defensive end, and one of the top 10 players in the state of Alabama in the 2014 class. Thomas-Thornton was being rectuited heavily by Auburn, LSU, and Texas A&M, but decided on the good Tigers at the end of his junior year.

According to Bud Elliot, the Vigor HS product was “flexible, athletic, and lean at 6’5 and 222 pounds”.
