WVU Football Recruiting

Four-Star WR Kevin Thomas Decommits from West Virginia



The tough night for West Virginia continues. After four-star running back Justin Williams decommitted from WVU earlier Wednesday, four-star wide receiver Kevin Thomas announced his own decommitment via Twitter Wednesday night.

Thomas, a 6-foot-3, 202-pound wide receiver from Neumann-Goretti High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, originally committed to WVU at the end of July. He visited Morgantown in June, at the same time as Williams, and even made trips out for multiple Mountaineer games this season.

Thomas announced on Twitter recently that he was accepted to WVU, looking to continue the Neumann-Goretti pipeline with fellow 2022 recruit Raleigh Collins III, but it’s clear he’s reconsidered recently.

Despite an injury-plagued senior season, Thomas’s track star background combined with his college football-ready frame made him an intriguing recruit in WVU’s 2022 class. With 18 offers and interest from over 20 schools, he’ll be in high demand. His WVU commitment originally came over Michigan State and Arizona State.

According to 247Sports, Thomas is the 541st-ranked recruit in the class, 71st-wide receiver and 16th-ranked recruit in Pennsylvania. Rivals is higher on him, ranking him as the 35th wide receiver and ninth recruit from Pennsylvania.

WVU’s 2022 recruiting class still has a commitment from three-star wide receiver Jarel Williams — the lone wide receiver in the class now.
