We might have lost the ball game to Auburn on Saturday, but we won a recruiting battle with the Plainsmen over DE Jhaustin "Doobie" Thomas (6-6 240) of Decatur, Georgia. Most of the recruiting services have him as a three-star. The AJC calls him a 'dominant' player however. I tend to judge recruits by their offer sheets - and most of the big time SEC and ACC programs have offered him. He also plays hoops and may try out for the USC basketball team as a PF.
