Arkansas defensive back Kiondre Thomas really hit the camp circuit hard this summer and it paid off with a few offers. All that being said, Thomas says one Big Ten school is recruiting him the hardest and he spoke with GopherDigest about his recruiting.

"I've heard from Minnesota, Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, Arkansas and Oklahoma State the most lately," Thomas said. They've just been seeing what's up with me and keeping me updated on their programs."

In-state school Arkansas is really taking their time with Thomas.

"They said the other day that they're going to figure out their defensive back numbers after fall camp," Thomas explained to GopherDigest.com. "They're still talking about how many corners they're going to take and they'll get back to me after that, so I'm still waiting here."

Minnesota is the school on the LA Tech defensive back commit the hardest right now.

"Minnesota recruits me the hardest," Thomas told GopherDigest.com. "They talk to every day via Twitter and send mail by the loads. Coach Sawvel and I talk via Twitter and he's been sending a whole bunch of videos and articles about the DB's there now. He's just been mainly trying to get to know me, so that's good. I like Minnesota a lot and my interest in them is very high because it lets me know they really want me. They're sitting very well for me right now."

With the season starting soon for the Arkansas senior, he has a few things he's working on before his final season.

"I'm really working on getting bigger and improving on my footwork. I want to get to 178 before the season as I'm around 170 right now. I'm looking at making an official decision after my football season as that's when I'll take my official visits. The two schools I know I'll take official visits to are Minnesota and Louisiana Tech. I haven't set up dates yet."
