Jacksonville State lands 5 star running back Roc Thomas

Roc Thomas left Auburn to play for Jacksonville State, and that is a major move for the JSU offense who lost their star back Troymaine Pope.

Thomas asked for and was granted his release from Auburn. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said the running back left the Tigers to play for the Gamecocks.

“I think he wants to get closer to home,” Malzahn said at the SEC Spring Meetings in Destin, Florida on Wednesday. “I think he has a chance to play for his former high school coach (John Grass). We wish Roc nothing but the best.”
