One of the hottest recruits in the Midwest is Dayton (OH) Dunbar runningback Tavion Thomas, and he has seen his offer list expand dramatically in the past month.
Thursday afternoon, Thomas learned of his latest offer and he admitted it basically left him in a state of shock.
"I was offered by Alabama today (Thursday), and I have to say it really means a lot," Thomas stated. "This is truly a blessing and I can't believe it's real right now."
"I feel like I must be dreaming to get an offer from Alabama," he added. "I spoke to Coach (Nick) Saban, and he said he was offering me a scholarship because he said I'm big, fast and physical as a runner."
"I will be visiting Ohio State this weekend for a visit, but they haven't really said anything about offering me yet," he explained.
