Who are the newest suitors to formally express their interest in signing Mr. Thomas?

"I just picked up three new offers this week. Clemson, LSU, and Auburn all offered me a scholarship," Thomas said.

Who's made the Banneker speedsters latest list of favorites?

"I like Florida, LSU, Clemson, Georgia, and Maryland the most right now. Florida and Clemson are probably still my leaders."

Why are the Gators and Tigers out front?

"Florida's head coach came by and offered me personally and that stands out. With Clemson, I just really love their coaching staff and I think I have a good chance to start right away."

What stands out about the other schools on his list?

LSU: "They got Xavier Carter and Early Doucet. That's a nice duo to play with."

Georgia: "I just like the Bulldogs period. I'm a Georgia fan."

Maryland: "I like them because they want me and my teammate Rodriquez Boyd."

Rodriquez plays opposite Carlos in the other WR spot for the Trojans. What would it mean to Thomas for the two of them to stick together at the next level?

"Get both of us and it aint gonna be nothing nice for the defense."

What's Carlos looking for most in a school?

"Playing time is really the most important thing."

Although they're not currently listed among the top 2 teams, the squad to keep an eye on in this race may be the Georgia Bulldogs.

"If Georgia offers me they will be one of my leaders for sure. They were recruiting me at CB but Coach Garner and the wide receiver coach (Eason) came through here and now they are recruiting me at WR. I think they're close to offering and infact Coach Richt is supposed to be coming to my school tomorrow."

Carlos would like to major in business management when he gets to college.
