Michael Thomas Visiting Missouri?
"I actually haven't put out my top five yet, but I'm getting ready to, and Missouri is right up there," said Thomas, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete who boasts a 3.65 GPA and 4.4-second 40-yard dash. "Mizzou, they're one of the top schools right now."
Thomas has set up only one visit so far – to Northwestern Sept. 15 – but plans to take all five officials. Penn State, Stanford and Cal, the latter two of which he visited this summer, also seem to be in good shape for officials.
"The next time I talk to coach [Brian] Jones, that's the time we'll set that up," Thomas said.
Stanford could be tough to beat for Thomas, who has been one of the Cardinal's top targets for some time and seems quite impressed with the school and football program,. He also has a lot of family in California. But he said not to read too much into that; he's still open to each of the top five-to-eight schools out of the nearly 20 that offered this summer.
Last year Thomas rushed for 1,172 yards and 10 touchdowns, passed for 235 yards and three touchdowns and had another 175 yards and two touchdowns receiving. He's being recruited by most schools as an ‘athlete,' though his preference is wide receiver or cornerback. Mizzou first looked at him at quarterback, but now seems more intrigued by his potential as a wideout, he said.
Likewise, he is intrigued by what MU has to offer, and it seems likely he'll be here in Columbia to check things out in the not-too-distant future. InsideMizzou.com will keep you updated…
