FSU secured the second commitment for its 2024 recruiting class on Monday night when Colquitt County (Ga.) High School tight end prospect Landen Thomas (6-foot-4, 210) committed to the Seminoles head coach Mike Norvell.
As a freshman in 2020 Thomas caught eight passes for 97 yards in nine games. The rising sophomore also is reported to hold offers from a group of schools that includes Miami, Georgia Tech and Tennessee.
“He will be one of the more sought after tight end prospects for the class of 2024,” said Osceola Recruiting Analyst Charles Fishbein prior to Thomas’ commitment to FSU. “He runs solid routes and he is tough to bring down after the catch. Thomas is someone you can slip out in the flats and forget about a linebacker trying to cover him. He can also line up in the slot and go against a smaller defensive back. His hands are good.”
Fishbein currently has Thomas ranked as the top tight end prospect in Georgia for the 2024 recruiting class.
Earlier this year running back Kam Davis from Albany (Ga.) Dougherty High School became the first prospect to commit to Norvell for the 2024 class.
