Thomas Has Top Two Targets

Georgia running back Kamani Thomas' junior season didn't exactly go the way that he had planned. Forced to deal with a painful injury suffered during the first game of the season, Thomas only ended up playing a little more than half of his team's schedule this past season.

Even though he was slowed by injury, Kamani Thomas performed well enough for his East Pauling High School team to attract the attention of numerous college programs in the region.

Sporting offers from Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Troy, Thomas has already formulated a pair of strong favorites in the recruiting process.

"Right now, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt are my top two," Thomas said of his early favorites.

Thomas already has a scholarship offer from the Commodores and says that he expects an offer from the Yellow Jackets to be coming his way soon.

Georgia Tech B-backs coach Brian Bohannon has done an excellent job of building a strong relationship with one of Georgia's top junior prospects.

"We talk on Facebook a lot and we have a very good relationship. He is a pretty nice coach and he just keeps it real with you."

Thomas recently found himself on the Georgia Tech campus, as he traveled to Atlanta to take part in the Yellow Jacket's Junior Day. In addition to meeting with the coaches, Thomas also got to spend some time with a few of Georgia Tech's other top recruits in the 2013 class.

"I was at their Junior Day on Saturday and it was a great Junior Day. I like the campus and I like Georgia Tech. I got to talk to Keyante Green while I was at the camp, which was pretty cool."

Thomas says that he is willing to listen to any schools who want to enter the picture, but as things stand currently, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt are the two teams that are getting the most serious looks. He says that he wants to take additional visits to each of the campuses so that he can hopefully have his decision out of the way before the start of his senior season.
