CU Lands First 4 Star of 2018 Class

Of course it’s a wide receiver

NCAA Football: Utah at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

CU is really stacked at wide receiver. We all know that. Now, it’s looking more and more like they’ll stay stacked. 2016 saw three four-stars sign at the receiver position (the fourth receiver chose CU over Iowa and Michigan). The 2017 class has started out well, too. Daniel Arias and Dimitri Stanley both have major offers and plenty of potential. Now add four star (on Scout and ESPN) Dylan Thomas to the mix.

Thomas once reflects the focus that this staff had in bringing big bodies to the position. At 6’3 and 180 pounds, he is already a college ready receiver. He plays for Sante Fe High School in Southern California, becoming the fifth commit from California in this class. He held offers from more than half the Pac-12, and released a top 7:

It’s easy to see why he was so highly coveted. He’s tall, long, and athletic, and he has long speed. He fits the common theme of the 2018 class of receivers in that he can win physically or athletically off the line of scrimmage. He’ll fit right in when he steps on campus.

Welcome, Dylan!
