Cory Thomas Profile
With the final stretch now upon us, the three star defensive lineman appears ready to make good on that promise to continue the recruiting process. The McAlla, Alabama product has three official visits set for the month of January.
"I am visiting Clemson next weekend, then I am going to Mississippi State and then the last weekend I will be at Tennessee," said Thomas. "Those are the three schools I am still looking at."
Thomas still considers himself a verbal pledge to the Volunteers, but he reports that there is still some wiggle room in his recruitment.
"It's going to come down to the official visits," said Thomas. "I am going to take the visits and then I am going decide where I want to go and then I am going to announce my final decision on signing day.
"Clemson and Mississippi State are both still in it and I want to see how those visits go.
"I am not sure what Tennessee needs to do to close it out to be honest.
"I want to know how they plan on getting all of the commitments in and I am going to talk with them about that when I take my official."
While Thomas is still learning the words to "Rocky Top", he reports that he is still interested in hearing with his other suitors still have to say.
"Clemson and Mississippi State are both recruiting me pretty hard, but I would say Mississippi State is probably recruiting me the hardest right now," said Thomas. "I talk to Coach (David) Turner and Coach (Geoff) Collins three to four times a week.
"I am still talking with Tennessee a lot too and I have a good relationship with those coaches.
"I am not sure what I am going to do in the end, but I want to take these visits and figure it out."
