4 star wide receiver Thomas Blackshear makes his college decision

Calvary Day’s 4-star wide receiver, Thomas Blackshear, has made his college decision. Chosing to spend his collegiate career at the University of Georgia and play for coach Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs.

“The coaches, going down there, getting to know the coaches more when I visited and watching them practice,” Blackshear told 247Sports. ”Talking to Coach Coley and Coach Kirby, that’s when I made the decision.”

Blackshear is the first wide receiver to commit to the Bulldogs’ 2025 class. He is the ninth commit in the class, which is currently ranked 12th in the nation.
