Five-star OL Kardell Thomas reaffirms commitment after previously being ‘shaken’ @kardellt62/Twitter

Five-star offensive lineman prospect Kardell Thomas reaffirmed his commitment to the LSU Tigers after previously being “shaken” in recruitment process.

For some backstory: Thomas had been committed to LSU since July of 2016. He was a pretty hard commitment at that. That was until earlier this month, though, when he told 247Sports that his recruitment had him thinking about other places.

“It’s been shaken up a bit. Georgia’s coming hard every day. Oklahoma is coming hard. We talk every day.

“LSU, I’m still with them, but it’s shaken. A side of me wants to go play for a national championship and then a side of me wants to come make this program better. I’m trying to find what I want to do with myself now.”

At the time, he was still saying he was committed to the Tigers, but with the tweet on Tuesday, it appears any chance of teetering has been put to bed.

The 6-foot-4, 320-pound behemoth is ranked as the top player at his position and the No. 2 recruit in the state of Louisiana as well as the No. 22 overall recruit in the country for the class of 2019 according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

He also had offers from Florida, Arizona State, Texas, Florida State  and Texas Tech among others.
