Florida State is quickly filling up the slots in its 2022 recruiting class. Defensive tackle prospect Bishop Thomas, who is from Orlando (Fla.) Bishop Moore High School, became the third prospect to commit to head coach Mike Norvell on Saturday and the second defensive lineman to commit to FSU in the last 24 hours.
The 6-foot-2, 301-pound Thomas, like the three other prospects to commit to Norvell this weekend — offensive guard Kanaya Charlton, offensive tackle Qae’shon Sapp and defensive tackle Trevion Williams — did so while in Tallahassee on his official visit.
This weekend’s visit marked the second time Thomas has been on campus this month. The three-star prospect is ranked as the 71st-best defensive line prospect in the country and the 68th-best overall prospect from Florida for the class of 2022.
Thomas had taken official visits to Texas and Tennessee prior to his visit to Tallahassee this weekend. He also holds offers from Penn State, Pitt and Louisville among others.
“Thomas has a quick first step and is violent with his hands,” said Osceola Recruiting Analyst Charles Fishbein. “He is a kid that can line up at defensive end and rush off the edge. He is a very active defensive lineman who lives in the opponent’s backfield. This could be the most underrated defensive tackle in Florida.”
Fishbein, who is also President of Elite Scouting Services, has Thomas ranked as the 12th-best defensive tackle in the state of Florida for the 2022 recruiting cycle.
Norvell now has 13 commitments to sign with FSU this winter. FSU’s 2022 recruiting class is ranked 5th in the nation and best in the ACC according to 247Sports.
