Latarrius Thomas sets official visit to Louisville

Latarrius Thomas is a big, strong wide receiver from New Smyrna Beach High School in Florida that has a long list of offers to choose from. He has set up his first official visit already.

"I have offers from Maryland, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, South Carolina, Florida, Miami, Nebraska, Louisville, Tennessee, Clemson, Georgia, FAU, UCF, and FIU," said Thomas. "I just got off the phone with Coach Levine at Louisville. We set up my official visit for November 26th when they play Syracuse. He was also asking me how my season was going."

U of L assistant Tony Levine also confirmed with L.T. that he will be on hand for one of his upcoming home games.

"He's coming down when we play Deltona," Thomas said. "It's the same weekend that they play South Florida. He said that he's going to come down early to see me play and then go up to his game."

Thomas also got phone calls from Tennessee, South Carolina, Indiana, and Virginia Tech last night, but he wasn't able to speak with them.

As Thomas continues to take calls throughout the week, he'll likely hear even more college coaches saying that they will be attending one of his future games, something that is used as motivation by the standout athlete.

"It's doesn't bother me," Thomas explained. "Actually, it motivates me to play even better so they can see what I can do."

Thomas helped get his team off to a blazing start with a 44-3 win over Pine Ridge.

"I had three catches for 56 yards and a touchdown, and I had two tackles on defense playing corner."

"Team's haven't been throwing the ball my direction very much though," he said. "Starting this week I am moving to safety, so they won't have a choice anymore."
