Tulane signee Caleb Thomas brings versatility, well-rounded talent
Tulane has demonstrated that they will scour the countryside, coast to coast, to locate the best football talent. California here they came.
Caleb Thomas from Santa Maria, California rejected offers from San Jose State, New Mexico and Fresno State in order to ink with the Green Wave. The defensive end/tight end is one of 18 signed in the current Tulane class.
The 6-foot-3, 275 pound Thomas displays demolishing blocking as a tight end. He also has reliable hands as a receiver. The Righetti High product is a solid pass rusher, great in pursuit with good speed, strength, athleticism and leadership ability. Thomas has a good swim move and looks powerful at the point of attack.
Tabbed as the Central Coast All Area MVP and the Mountain League Defensive MVP in 2018, Thomas as a junior was named the PAC 5 League Defensive MVP. In 2016, he suffered a devastating broken leg which shortened his season.
Thomas recorded 16 tackles for loss and an interception this past season despite wearing an oversized cast on his right hand due to a broken thumb injury. He runs a 5.0 forty, squats 405 pounds and maintains a 3.67 GPA.
The Green Wave intend to use Thomas as a defensive lineman.
