Tight end Blake Thomas from Cleveland St Ignatius (Ohio) just earned two more offers from the University of Connecticut and Indiana He is excited about both and is starting to research the schools.

"The first time I heard about U Conn was when they won the Big East last year. They got really good in the last couple of years," Thomas said. "Sounds like a great school."

Thomas said he has heard good things about the coaching program at U Conn. Thomas talked with Coach (Joe) Moorhead. One of the recruit's previous coaches played football at Georgetown and was coached by Joe Moorhead.Thomas said he seems like a respectable coach and leader.

Thomas said he doesn't know very much about Indiana yet.

"I heard the campus is beautiful and it's a pretty big school. I haven't heard much about the program yet," Thomas said. "I will probably go to Notre Dame this summer and stop in Bloomington."

But what are the favorite schools right now for the 6-foot-4, 245-pound tight end?

"My favorite school I have an offer from is Boston College right now. Probably my favorite I don't have an offer from is Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State," Thomas said. "I would say those three schools I would definitely like to get offers from."

Thomas said he would like to get a Michigan offer. Michigan would be high on his list if an offer were to come his way.

"I would like to see Michigan offer soon," Thomas said. "I would probably want to go to Michigan. It's a really good school. It could possibly be between Michigan and Boston College."

Thomas said Michigan has strong academics in almost every department. He is looking for a strong academic program.

"I would definitely go visit Michigan if they offered me," Thomas said.

Ohio State, Michigan, Indiana, Northwestern and the University of Connecticut are expected to visit Thomas at his high school in the near future.

Thomas participates in track and field. He throws discus and recently threw 160 feet and 1 inch.

"Track and field definitely helps with footwork. You need a lot of body control and foot speed," Thomas said. "That is how you generate a lot of power."
