QB Cam Thomas leaving West Point

Cam Thomas, Army’s No. 2 quarterback during its 11-win 2018 season, is transferring from West Point.

Thomas, a sophomore, confirmed his departure. He also posted an Army highlight video on Twitter titled, “until next time” Friday afternoon.

Thomas’ name had been removed from Army’s roster online.

The Huntsville, Ala. native rushed for 306 yards and three touchdowns in eight games for the Black Knights. Thomas helped Army to a 31-30  double-overtime victory over Miami- (Ohio) in his only career start. Thomas rushed for a career-high 137 yards in the victory. He threw his first career touchdown pass, 15 yards to Jordan Asberry, and added a 20-yard touchdown run in a 70-14 win over Houston in the Armed Forces Bowl.

There’s no word on Thomas’ next destination.

Who will fill Thomas’ role as Kelvin Hopkins’ backup for the 2019 season?

Sophomore Christian Anderson finished the 2018 season as Army’s No. 3 quarterback.

Coach Jeff Monken is high on the current freshmen class of quarterback Clay Czyzynski, Jabari Laws, Mike Mbony and Tyhier Tyler. Czyzynski is the most physical runner out of the group. Laws was moved to slotback when Army experienced injuries at the position late in the season. Mbony and Tyler are both athletic prospects.

Also have heard rave reviews of Army Prep quarterback Jemel Jones.
