Kamani Thomas Still Focused On Top Two

When we last heard from three-star RB Kamani Thomas two months ago, he mentioned that two schools were starting to stand out in his recruiting. Now that some time has passed, are those same two schools still in the lead for his services?

"Yes sir," Kamani Thomas responded when asked if Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt are still his favorite schools. "I really like the academics and the location of each of those schools. As of right now, both of those schools are equal at the top of my list."

Thomas travelled to Tennessee for Vanderbilt's spring game on April 14th, and he was recently in Atlanta for Georgia Tech's annual spring football contest.

"The spring game at Georgia Tech was pretty good," Thomas commented. "They had a pretty good turnout for a spring game, and it was a pretty good game. I got to talk to the coaches, but other than that, I just watched the game with everybody else."

One of the coaches whom Thomas was able to spend some time with was Yellow Jacket's coach Brian Bohannon. Thomas has been talking with Coach Bohannon very frequently throughout the recruiting process, and his recruiting coach is planning on making a trip to visit one of his high school practices in the near future.

"He didn't say when he was coming, but he said he would contact me and let me know when he is coming," Thomas said. "I just know that he is planning on coming during the spring."

Thomas has been sitting on five scholarship offers for the last few months, and he still has yet to receive an offer from the coaches at Georgia Tech. Despite the fact that he has not been offered up to this point, Thomas feels very confident that the Yellow Jackets could be extending an offer in the near future.

"From talking to Coach Bohannon, he said I was pretty high on their list. He said they will evaluate me more when they come for one of my spring practices, but I feel pretty good about getting an offer from them."

Part of the delay with the extension of an offer could be due to a serious injury which Thomas suffered last season.

As Thomas continues to evaluate his options, he says that he would ideally like to have his college decision out of the way before the start of his senior season. However, he says that he is not willing to rush a decision just to get it out of the way.

"I'm thinking about making a decision before the season, but I don't know. Whenever I know what school feels like home, that is when I will make my decision."
