Runnin’, stumblin’, bumblin’ …
Running is no small feat for 330-pound LSU commit Kardell Thomas. But you better get out of his way when he hits the track.
Thomas, aka Mr. Pancake, recently ran the anchor leg of the 4×100-relay for Southern Lab out of Baton Rouge.
According to a report from everydayshouldbesaturday.com, Thomas runs a 5.0 40-yard dash, which is motoring for someone as big as Pancake … uh, excuse me — MR. Pancake.
According to SEC Country’s LSU page, Thomas got his nickname for his propensity for “pancake blocks.”
If he indeed fulfills commitment to play for LSU (something he says he has wanted to do since he was 13), Thomas will be part of the 2019 recruiting class.
At 6-foot-4 , Thomas is already bigger than 2017 LSU offensive guard signees Edward Ingram and Saahdiq Charles.
