Michigan assistant coach Fred Jackson braved the Texas ice storm to visit the school of La Marque safety James Thomas yesterday. We talked to Thomas just Tuesday evening (Click HERE) -- here is what Thomas told us last night, after the visit.
How did your visit go with Coach Jackson?
"It was really good. Coach Jackson is a very cool guy."
What was discussed in terms of an offer?
"Coach Jackson is taking my film back to Coach English and they said they would call me Friday and let me know if they are going to offer me or not."
How do you feel the call on Friday will go?
"I feel comfortable with it. I think I will get an offer."
If you don't get an offer, are you going to commit to Arkansas this weekend on your visit?
"Probably not, we just have to see."
If you do get an offer, how is that going to change your plans?
"I'm going to Arkansas this weekend and I would have to visit Michigan the next weekend so I can compare both."
So it will come down to a battle between Arkansas and Michigan if you get the offer?
