University of Miami receiver Jeff Thomas announced on social media Friday that he is turning pro. He will forgo his final season of eligibility to enter the NFL Draft.

Thomas will not play in the Independence Bowl on Dec. 26 against Louisiana Tech.

He made 83 receptions for 1,316 yards and eight touchdowns in his career. He also served as a kickoff and punt returner.

Thomas has questions to answer in the predraft process.

He was dismissed from the team in November 2018 for violating team rules. Thomas returned to Miami for 2019 but served a two-game suspension for violating team rules this season.

Thomas made 31 catches for 379 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games this season.

  1. Wow. 31 catches. Must really think highly of himself. Another stupid kid getting brainwashed information from a greedy agent. 31 catches. Thats worthy of a 6th rd pick.

    Or he is just a broke college kid who doesn’t come from a wealthy background who realizes he can make around $2M dollars as a late round NFL draft pick on his first contract which is still a crap load of money. The average American will be lucky to earn $2M Dollars over their entire working career . Think about it, if you make $50K a year it will take 40yrs to earn $2M before taxes, if you 75K it’ll take you 26.6yrs to make $2M, make $100K a year it’ll take 20yrs, this kid can do it in just 4yrs, I’d come out to if I was in his position.

  3. This kid had a ton of potential at Miami but it never panned out into anything. He’s fast but he was never a playmaker. KJ Osborn is the guy to draft.

  4. A lot of mental and disciplinary problems in high school and college. Got kicked off the team. Will get a shot with some professional team but don’t expect him to be at every meeting or practice.

  5. If he can’t follow rules and behave himself in college, he certainly won’t as a pro. Unfortunately, Thomas will learn. The hard way!
