Rock Thomas talks Tide visit
"We are having fun down here," Racean Thomas said. "The trip has been good. The practice was good. It's very physical. I like how organized it is.
"I talked to coach Saban a little bit. I talked to the running backs coach [Burton Burns]. We had a good conversation. He talked about the little things and how I would fit in."
The 6-foot, 197-pound prospect has already received an offer from the defending national champions.
"I really can't say what it is, but I have always liked Alabama," Thomas said. "I can't say what it is about them I like so much. I have just always liked Tuscaloosa."
Thomas also has scholarship offers from Auburn, Clemson and LSU.
"I think it's good," he said of the early attention. "I know I have to keep doing well and working hard. Hopefully more offers will come. I don't have any favorites right now. I am keeping an open mind. I am more concerned about academics right now."
The rising junior helped the Yellow Jackets reach the semi-finals of the state playoffs in 2011.
"I think I am a balanced back," said Thomas. "I am versatile. I mostly have speed and strength. I can mix it up. I think I need to work on getting bigger and stronger."
