Track top Georgia and national football recruits from high school to college through the NFL / pros with AJC news, updates and more.
Signed with Georgia.
Thornton is being heavily recruited by many schools and was widely reported to have narrowed his choices down to three. Our recruiting expert Chip Towers found this was not true in an exclusive interview.
Thornton is still considering ten schools at the moment. And he stressed he doesn't have to visit a school to consider them.
“I don’t have to take an official visit to sign with a school,” he said emphatically. “I could just get up and go to that school because I’m going to know the background about the school, the coaches at that school and what’s going on at the school. I wouldn’t have a problem with that.”
