Ambry Thomas is one of the top prospects in the Class of 2017. A four-star cornerback from Detroit’s Martin Luther King Jr. High, Thomas is an exceptional athlete, but he still strives to make improvements. It was in that perpetual search that he offered some praise to the hey day of former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson (nee Ochocinco).

Wouldn’t you know that Ochocinco replied? And that he was all too happy to offer his aid?

Tis’ the season, after all.

It’s anyone’s guess as to whether Thomas and Johnson actually link up, but Johnson has spoken in the recent past about segueing into coaching, so perhaps some private sessions with Thomas could open that door? After all, if one hand can wash the other, perhaps Johnson could help Thomas become the next truly great cornerback, all while Thomas helps Johnson establish his coaching bona fides. Sounds like a nice Christmas gift for everyone.
