Class of 2019 LSU offensive line commit Kardell Thomas is known as Mr. Pancake.
Sure, the elite Southern Lab (La.) School lineman is a large specimen. After all, he’s 6-foot-4 and 320 pounds heading into the end of his sophomore season. But he received that nickname for the work he does bulldozing defenders along the offensive line.
Without question, Thomas’ future is at offensive guard. However, the elite recruit likes to be referred to as an athlete.
He showed why on Thursday.
Thomas ran the final leg of a 4×100-meter race during a track meet. By the way, you can see 2018 linebacker pledge Damone Clark in the video clip below, too.
Thomas turned up the gas and put the burners on during the final stretch and showed off impressive speed in the process. It’s no wonder why LSU is anxious to get this uber-athletic lineman on campus.
