Ambry Thomas has been a busy man in June.

Making his way to Sound Mind Sound Body recently, as well as Michigan's football camp in Ann Arbor, the 2017 Detroit (Mich.) King four-star cornerback continues to familiarize himself with the Wolverines.

At times, this entire recruiting process can be a little overwhelming.

"It's real crazy right now, honestly, my phone is blowing up," Thomas told The Michigan Insider. "Twitter is blowing up. It's real smooth, though."

Spending a considerable amount of time with Michigan's coaching staff, Thomas believes the comfort level continues to rise.

"I love their whole coaching staff," Thomas said. "Coach (Jim) Harbaugh, he's a hyped man. That whole coaching staff is just real smooth."

"Coach (Don) Brown, he real cool," Thomas added. "Coach (Zordich), he gives me tips and all that. He will help me out on how to train my eyes."

Thomas will undoubtedly have several eyes on his recruitment as things continue to heat up. 

Looking to release a list of the top eight schools remaining, Thomas adds he'll be waiting until signing day to make his choice.

Looking to play early and find a program that can prepare him for a potential shot at the NFL, Thomas also says he's more than open to leaving the state.

"Yeah, that's still a big factor," he said. "I want to be different, I'm a different cat. It's all coming down to who will recruit me the hardest."

Although creating his own path is paramount, Thomas would love to head to college along with his friend and fellow defensive back Jaylen Kelly-Powell.

"It's very important, that's like blood," he said. "It is very important. 10 (out of 10)."

One other program making a push for Thomas' services is Michigan State.

"I love Michigan State, it's like family up there," Thomas said. "I feel real comfortable up there, I've got three-four teammates up there. It's real smooth."
