Thomas, a 6-foot-6, 233-pound athlete rated the nation's No. 3 tight end by Scout.com, has unofficially visited a member of his top seven each of the past three Saturdays – Virginia (versus Southern Cal), Wake Forest (versus Mississippi), and Virginia Tech (versus Georgia Tech).
Approaching his recruitment on a week-by-week basis, Thomas doesn't have any plans past this weekend. At some point, though, he says he will attend games at Clemson, Tennessee, and West Virginia – the only members of his top seven that have yet to receive a visit.
"After the one to UNC, we'll see [where I'm going to go] after that," Thomas said.
After unofficially visiting all of his top seven, Thomas will determine the next step of his recruitment.
"We'll see if I want to take officials or if I feel comfortable after that," Thomas said.
Furthermore, Thomas isn't quite sure when he'll make a verbal commitment.
"I don't want to drag it out too long, but I don't want to rush it," Thomas said.
"I'm looking for a place where I feel real comfortable and where I can see myself living for four years."
Thomas camped at UNC in June and also unofficially visited for a basketball game.
"I pretty much know a lot about [the school]," Thomas said. "This [visit] is just to get down there to see a game and check out the atmosphere."
With Thomas starting at quarterback and seeing spot duty as a defensive back, Brookville is 4-0.
"The team is playing well – I'm really excited about that," Thomas said. "I'm just really happy that we're winning."
While he refrains from taking any credit, Thomas is a major reason for the team's success. Most recently, last Friday Thomas threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score to help Brookville defeat Daleville (Va.) Lord Botetourt, 36-0.
