Canterbury football player Dominique Thornton has received a scholarship offer from the University of Charleston, Canterbury coach Stephen Dudley said.
The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Thornton is projected to play either QB or WR.
At Canterbury, he passed for 12 touchdowns and nearly 1,000 yards as a senior.
“Dominique thoroughly enjoyed his visit, and saw snow for the first time while he was there,” Dudley said. “It sounds like he really hit it off with the coaches, and players, and can see himself fitting in well to their program. The coaches see ‘Nique’ contributing early. Dominique is leaning hard toward committing, but will go through with other official visits before making his decision.”
In addition to Charleston, a Division II program, Thornton is receiving interest from James Madison, Harding University and Presbyterian, Dudley said.
