Thomas Has First Offer

Detroit Country Day (Mich.) junior lineman Poet Thomas picks up his first offer.

Detroit Country Day junior Poet Thomas is a 6'6, 295-lb prospect who can play either side of the ball, and has the athleticism to play varsity and AAU basketball.

On Wednesday night, he received news he has been waiting for as the Toledo Rockets extended the first scholarship offer his way.

"It does feel good to get that first one," he said. "I've been waiting patiently!"

Thomas says visiting the Rockets or any other school for that matter, will be difficult right now.

"I don't have any [visits or junior days] planned because of hoops."

Also hearing from Michigan State, Stanford, Michigan, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Penn State and others, Thomas says a new school recently jumped into the mix.

"Arizona State. I've been talking to them a lot."
