Blue-Chip Wide Receiver Dylan Thomas Likes Buffaloes, Plans to Visit Boulder

The strongest position group out West this recruiting cycle is easily the wide receivers. One of the highly regarded pass catchers in that group is Dylan Thomas, from Santa Fe Springs...


Dylan Thomas enjoyed his spring trips to Arizona and Arizona State, and now he is in the process of lining up unofficial visits to go see Colorado and Boise State. He has been in consistent contact with both running backs coach Darian Hagan and co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach Darrin Chiaverini from the Buffaloes' staff.

"They told me all about Colorado, the school, the academics, and how I would fit into the program," Thomas said. "I like the way they turned around their program and I noticed their receivers had a lot of success last season. I think they are only going to keep improving and they are graduating four senior receivers so they are going to have some open spots."

Thomas has expressed the most interest in the Pac-12 schools that have offered him, but Boise State is also in the running because of the Broncos' winning tradition.

"They are great for a Mountain West school," Thomas said of Boise State. "You can't ignore the success they have had. That is what really excites me about their team."

Thomas plans to announce either a top five or a top 10 this summer.

"And then probably after a couple official visits early during the season, I might make a commitment," he said. "It is going to be a hard decision to make. All of these colleges are coming through and telling me what they have to offer. I am going to have to sit down and really try to figure out what system and what school would fit me best."

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Thomas considers his ability to go up and get the ball to be his best attribute as a receiver.

"Thomas is very smooth and fluid, and shows a nice burst," Scout.com recruiting analyst Greg Biggins previously wrote. "He has high level body control, runs well after the catch and looks like a natural pass catcher as well."
