With national signing day (Feb. 2) around the corner, here is a look at the top uncommitted cornerbacks.

Thomas

Bernard Thomas (Blue Springs, Mo./Blue Springs)

Player rank: NR | Position rank: 41 | Grade: 77 | Stars: 3
Height: 5-10 | Weight: 175 pounds | Evaluation
Considering
Colorado Kansas State Tulsa
Why they want him: Thomas will compete for a spot on the field right away, but could get better with some improvements to his coverage. He moves well laterally and defends the pass well enough to compensate for some of his deficiencies. Thomas should develop into a solid rotation player.
Recruiting update: Thomas had to reschedule an official visit to Kansas State, but it never was rescheduled. He holds offers from Tulsa, Kansas State and Colorado, but time will tell if he's able to sign with any of them.
