Visits making decision harder for Latarrius Thomas

3-star prospect Latarrius Thomas returned from his unofficial visits to Florida and Louisville yesterday and spoke told that the trip has made his future decision even harder.

While his stock continues to rise, receiver/safety prospect Latarrius Thomas chose to take a closer look at a couple of the schools that have extended scholarship opportunities the past few days.

With offers in hand from programs such as Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, Miami, South Carolina, Tenessee and others, Thomas embarked on a weekend trip that took him to Gainesville and Louisville.

"It was a great trip," Thomas said. "I loved it and enjoyed visiting both school's."

Thomas visited with Florida prior to making the journey further north to the River City, where he spent two days checking out Bobby Petrino's program.

"Florida was georgeous," he said of his first stop. "I loved their campus. I got to meet with the position coach, visited the weight room and got to practice on the field."

"I liked Louisville too," he continued. "I visited the dorms, the weight room, the locker room and the stadium. I also got to watch the team run some skellie."

While unofficial visits can often help make a pending college decision clearer, Thomas admits that the past few days has made things even more difficult.

"It definately made things harder for me," said the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Thomas. "I liked both of them and there are other places I want to visit, but I'm not going to take any more trips this summer."

As a junior, Thomas had 36 receptions for 500 yards and eight touchdowns while being named First Team All-Conference and All-County and he says that he likely won't make a decision until later in the year.

"I plan on using all of my official visits," Thomas said. "I'll probably make my decision after the season."
