Thomas Set For Initial Visit

Tyrus Thomas of Baton Rouge (LA) McKinley begins the visitation process this weekend. He's headed to the Big East first.

Though not quite a meteoric rise, forward Tyrus Thomas moved himself way up the charts into high-major territory with some successful outings this summer.

Thomas, a member of the Louisiana Dream Team AAU squad, said that he had zero offers prior to the July period. And now?

"Right now I'm with Virginia Tech, LSU, Tulane, Penn State, North Texas and Oregon State." He says that each school has offered. He's even got a second tier of schools that includes Western Kentucky and Louisiana-Lafayette.

Virginia Tech hosts him on his first official visit this weekend. He would like to visit most of the schools on his list though LSU and Tulane wouldn't need officials since they are so close.

Thomas knows exactly what he's looking for in a college. "I want to know who are they losing at the time of me being a freshman. What playing time do I have a chance of achieving and what impact can I have?"
