Georgia State football continues its march on in state prospects by offering running back Shadrach Thornton from Liberty County HS in Hinesville.

Thornton also holds offers from NC State, Kentucky and Vanderbilt. He has interest from Georgia Tech, Not only is he hearing from Georgia Tech, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Stanford.
