The West Chester, Ohio star holds offers from both Ohio State and Louisville and is expected to make official visits to both schools before making a college decision.
Thomas, a former high school teammate of Louisville signee Josh Chichester, made the trip to U of L with Lakota West coach Larry Cox and a few teammates. Cox confirmed with InsideTheVille.com earlier in the week that the 6-8 Chichester was definitely enrolling at U of L in January and seemed to indicate that Thomas had the Buckeyes and Cardinals at the top of his list.
About 30-40 prospect made unofficial visits to Louisville Saturday, including several from Louisville Western High School. Most of the visitors appeared to be underclassmen.
Several underclass prospects from Byrnes High School, one of the top high school football programs in South Carolina, also made the trip north to watch the Cardinals dispatch the Huskies. Junior defensive back Cartier Rice (5-9, 170) was one of the Byrnes players visiting and was accompanied by both of his parents.
A pair of local junior stars from Louisville also made unofficial visits Saturday. Male linebacker Dexter Heyman, the younger brother of U of L defensive lineman Earl Heyman, and PRP standout defensive lineman Brandon Newman (6-1, 295), were both on hand. Heyman and Newman are two of the top juniors in the state of Kentucky
