More SEC Schools Chase Thomas

There's a bunch of new news with Top 50 senior Charles Thomas. For starters, he's back to his old stomping ground at Callaway High and he's taking another SEC visit this weekend.

So far, Jackson (MS) Callaway High senior Charles Thomas has taken trips to Oklahoma and Florida State. The Sooners landed junior college frontcourt standout Taj Gray this week.

"I wondered why [OU] had stopped calling," Thomas said. "I didn't even know they had signed a dude until my coach called and told me."

Florida State, Georgia and Arkansas remain on his list. In fact, the Seminoles are quite strong. "Right now Florida State is my leader." Thomas termed the visit "awesome" and "phenomenal."

Still, two more SEC programs and possibly a third will receive visits. Georgia begins that process this weekend. "You only get this once in a lifetime so if I get a visit I'm going to take it."

After the Georgia trip, Thomas heads to Arkansas the following weekend. The Hogs have his AAU teammate and No. 3 prospect in America, already committed. Al Jefferson, barring a flirtation with the NBA, will be in Fayetteville next season. Mississippi could also be in line for a visit.

Thomas recently transferred back to Callaway High, the school where he started his high school career. He was there as a freshman and then played two seasons at Lanier.
