Welcome to the U, Thomas Gore!
December 21, 2022
In the middle of a frantic signing day, Miami received word that transfer DT Thomas Gore (Georgia State - Nashville, TN) has selected Miami as his transfer destination.
At 6’-0”/270, Thomas is the third transfer to announce to the Canes in this cycle. He chose Miami over North Carolina.
The first-team All-Sun Belt selection (Pro Football Focus) is undersized but his production during his three years in Atlanta is undeniable. Thomas generated 76 pressures, 14 sacks, and 22 tackles for loss. He is considered an interior pass rusher, who will give opposing guards fits with his speed and advanced technical skills.
Miami needs to reload at defensive tackle after losing three interior players to the transfer portal after last season. Thomas will be a solid rotational player, depth and a positive influence in the locker room for the Canes. He joins Joshua Horton as new recruits in the Miami interior. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
Welcome to the U, Thomas! Welcome to our family!
