Meet Christian Thomas

| 3 Comments

Name: Christian Thomas

Position: Defensive End and Tight End

Class: Freshman

Age: 18

High School: Highland (Palmdale)

Comparison: His versatility is reminiscent of Fred Davis, who successfully switched positions from WR to TE.

Prep Career: He had 43 receptions for 674 yards (15.7 avg.) with 9 TDs in 2009 and was named a Super Prep All-American.

Fall Camp: The 6'3" 233 pound freshman has the body of a tight end, but he has the speed to rush the quarterback.  Monte Kiffin is keeping it simple for him, "Get in your sprinter stance, get away from the tackle and hit the quarterback," Thomas said in his best coach's voice.

In his own words: "The more you can do; the more you can play.  And I came here to play," Thomas told the assembled media.

I like this kid already. Sounds open minded and coachable. I wish you the best of luck Christian and look forward to seeing you contribute on the field. Fight on!

I think Thomas would make a fine linebacker. It will be interesting to see if they move him next year to the linebacker position after having time to work with him as the previous coaches did with Kennard. Thomas would be ideal as an outside linebacker. He has speed and excellent hands and would be often matched up against the opposing tight end or back in pass coverage. It will also be interesting to see if he has a nose for the ball and can tackle well. He has a great attitude!

OMG. THATS CRAZY POOKA ON YOUTUBE AT USC... DAMN U DOIN IT BIG.. IM PROUD OF U YOUNG MAN...LOL
