According to Rivals, Thornton has aΒ  “long, wiry frame but needs to add strength. Releases off the line well and gets into route quickly. Knows how to set up defensive backs. Locates ball well and is sure-handed. Possession receiver with big-play capability. Has deceptive speed. Runs 4.63 in 40. Attacks ball in air. Good body control and flexibility. Legitimate red-zone threat. Needs to tighten his route running out of breaks. Must get stronger in the upper body. High-level player for elite Power 5 program. Second- or third-round NFL draft potential.”

Recent WVU commit Devell Washington calls Thornton “his bro” and asks West Virginia fans to “show him some love.”Β  Get over to Twitter and show “The Joker” how loved and appreciated he would be at West Virginia University!
