Bishop Thomas commits to Florida State

A Bishop joins a Pope in Tallahassee.

The Florida State Seminoles have added another key chess piece to their 2022 recruiting class, and this time it’s a Bishop.

Bishop Thomas is a 6’2”, 285 lb defensive tackle who currently plays for Bishop Moore Catholic in Orlando, FL. He is ranked by 247 Sports Composite as the 467th best player in the country, including the 84th best defensive lineman and 79th best player in Florida. He chose the Seminoles over offers from the Louisville Cardinals, Oregon Ducks, Pittsburgh Panthers, Penn State Nittany Lions, Tennessee Volunteers, Texas Longhorns, and others.

He previously played with Tribe ‘21 signee Byron Turner Jr. at St. Augustine in New Orleans, LA, strengthening his ties to the Garnet and Gold even more. Thomas has been a priority for assistant coach Odell Haggins since being offered on March 4 and had visited FSU numerous times, including during the Midnight Madness event that kicked off the official visit period for this recruiting cycle.

With Thomas now officially on board, the 2022 Florida State recruiting class ranks fifth nationally and 1st in the ACC. As always stay tuned and head on over to the Recruiting Thread for more insight and recruiting discussion; FSU might not be done yet this weekend.
