Lafonte Thourogood…NFTC at Virginia Tech
Lafonte Thourogood performed well throughout the day. He stood out amongst an impressive group of quarterbacks. He is good enough with his arm and legs that he can beat you with the pass or the run. He is certainly talented enough to be a difference maker on the next level it is just a matter of what position. He often gets mentioned as a player that will switch positions in college but it seems that is more because of his potential as an impact player at another position than any deficiencies as a quarterback. "I came here to compete and perform," said Thourogood. "I actually thought I did real well. I learned things today and corrected some of my technique. I think some quarterbacks can do things a little better than me right now but I can do some things a little better than them too." Thourogood is closing in on ten offers. He said he is considering many schools and there is still some time to go yet. He did mention a few on top though. "I am still wide open right now. I do like Virginia, West Virginia, Virginia Tech and North Carolina the most. Things could always change but those schools are at the top right now." Thourogood plans to attend the Elite 11 camp on May 22nd.
