Louisville adds massive Georgia lineman

Conrad Thomas, a talented 6-5, 330-pound offensive lineman from Georgia, ended his recruitment Monday night. Thomas made an official visit to Louisville over the weekend, and was also considering South Carolina.

One day after returning from his official visit to Louisville, Conrad Thomas, a 6-5, 330-pound offensive lineman from Douglasville, Georgia, verbally committed to the Cardinals.

"I just committed to Louisville," Thomas told InsideTheVille.com Monday night. "It was a question of when, not if following my visit. I talked with my dad, and my coach today and went ahead and committed."

Thomas' commitment excited the Louisville coaching staff when he gave them the good news Monday night.

"They were real happy," Thomas said. "Coach (Greg) Nord put me on the speaker phone when I committed and sounded very excited."

Thomas had official visits scheduled to Memphis and South Carolina in January. It doesn't appear he'll take those visits.

"I doubt I'm going to go on those trips," Thomas said. "I'm done with the recruiting process."

So why the decision to commit to Louisville?

"I really liked the school and everything about my visit," Thomas said. "I liked everything about Louisville."

Currently rated a two-star prospect by Scout.com, it appears Thomas will eventually replace Kurt Quarterman when the massive 6-5, 335-pound Louisville offensive guard departs next season.

"The coaches told me that when he leaves they want me to take his spot on the offensive line," Thomas said.

With his recruitment now behind him, Thomas and his family are ready to celebrate.

"I'm calling all of my family and friends tonight," Thomas said. "My mom is having a birthday and commitment party this Friday."
