Former Auburn defensive end Justin Thomas-Thornton announced he would be attending Northwest Mississippi Community College after leaving the Tigers in June.
He has his next stop already lined up, as the former 4-star prospect has committed to Jacksonville State, per a report from 247Sports’ Ryan Bartow.
Thomas-Thornton tweeted a picture that appeared to indicate where he’s headed, though his words leave it open to interpretation.

Thomas-Thornton attended Vigor High School in Mobile, Ala, where he was considered the No. 6 defensive end in the country and the No. 6-ranked player in the state.
