Track the major bills winding through the Georgia legislature

Florida Gators’ recruit tweets out proof that he had UGA offer

Adonis Thomas committed to Florida over Alabama last Friday.

But the 4-star linebacker from Central Gwinnett High School was catching flack from some UGA fans on Twitter who claimed he didn’t really have an offer from the home-state Bulldogs.

This kind of bothered Thomas, so he tweeted out a copy of the UGA scholarship letter he had recently gotten in the mail from Mark Richt on Monday.

“I did it because there was fans saying I didn’t have a real UGA offer, and they were saying they never recruited me,” Thomas told the AJC.

Did it work? Did tweeting out a copy of his UGA offer clear things up with those fans? “I don’t know, maybe,” Thomas said with a laugh. “You know you always have bad feedback (from fans of other schools) in recruiting, regardless.”

The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder is rated as a 4-star and the No. 18 overall prospect out of the state of Georgia for 2015.
