Dorman OL/TE Brandon Thomas' high school career is now over, after the Cavaliers lost to Byrnes last weekend 24-13, but Thomas is still a hot prospect on the recruiting scene.
While he is still firm in his commitment to Clemson, he is contemplating several other official visits next month.
CUTigers.com caught up with him shortly before the Dorman/Byrnes game last weekend to get his thoughts on a number of topics:
CUTigers.com was on hand to talk with Lattimore afterwards:
Thomas: Well you know it is a big game. We beat them the first time. They are coming in looking for another win against us. They beat us last year in the playoffs. This is going to be a really big game. I think we are going to beat them this time.
What do you have for them tonight?
Thomas: We are coming harder. We have been working all week on speed and getting our strength back. Last time we played them they played faster than us and played at a high tempo, but we still came out on top. Well this week we are going to try hit them hard, play faster and play hard.
How is the recovery coming on your injured leg?
Thomas: It is coming good you know. I got surgery next week, but everything is going good. I am walking better. I even can jog a little bit, but I am not supposed to. Everything is going to be okay.
Are you going to be running up and down the sidelines tonight?
Thomas: Oh yes sir, I am going up and down the sidelines. If my leg starts hurting I am going to take a little seat, but I am going to be supporting my team out there all the chances I can get.
Where are you going to take your official visits?
Thomas: I know I am going to take one to Clemson on January 10. I am going to take one to Florida, North Carolina and probably South Carolina.
Where are you going to be tomorrow?
Thomas: I am going to be at the Clemson-South Carolina game.
Who is going to win the Clemson-South Carolina game?
Thomas: I think Clemson is going to come out on top, probably 35-20.
Who is going with you tomorrow?
Thomas: My friend and my nephew.
Thomas is currently ranked as the No. 23 offensive tackle prospect in the nation and is a four-star prospect according to Scout.com.
