This past Friday the Florida Gators plucked a highly-touted recruit out of Georgia’s backyard in 2015 linebacker Adonis Thomas. The Lawrenceville, GA native wasn’t short on offers from FBS programs. Thomas, who is ranked as the No. 10 outside linebacker and No. 168 overall recruit according to 247 Sports, chose the Gators over the home-state Bulldogs, Alabama Crimson Tide, and a slew of other programs.
The pill for the Dawgs has apparently been hard to swallow. Just a few days after committing, Thomas took to Twitter to put Georgia fans in their place. He sent the following tweet on Monday with the caption, “For the UGA fans that said they backed off and that I wasn’t good enough for them because my offer wasn’t committable.”

Defensive recruit choosing Will Muschamp and the Gators over the Dawgs? There’s never been a more appropriate time to drop this: BOOM. Served.
Hopefully Thomas sticks with his commitment, because this is a chapter waiting to be finished for the Florida-Georgia rivalry book.
