Thomas eyes official visits

Taijaun Thomas remains set on his two favorite schools, Northwestern and Stanford. The next step in his recruitment, though, is to take official visits at each campus. The Monroe, La. receiver updates his recruitment in this recruiting update.

Taijuan Thomas remains torn between his two favorite schools, Northwestern and Stanford. His recruitment is on hold for the time being.

"It's pretty much the same," said Thomas. "I'm pretty busy with football in high school, right now. There's nothing really different."

The next step for the Monroe, La. receiver is to take an official visit at each school. He hopes to realize one factor of each program.

"I just want to see how their game day is," Thomas said. "Just how they prepare and the different things they do."

Thomas, a 5-foot-10, 175-pounder, has maintained constant contact with Northwestern coaches Dennis Springer and Randy Bates, his lead recruiters.

After visiting Evanston in July, there isn't much more the NU coaches must sell him on.

"The school speaks for itself," said Thomas of Northwestern.

During the offseason, Thomas put in extra work to improve his sub-4.4 speed, and feels as if it has paid off during his senior season.

"I feel like I'm a lot faster than I was," he said. "Also, I'm a lot more aware of things on the field because of being out there a couple years. I'm much more football smart."

Aside from the Wildcats and Cardinal, Thomas holds offers from Houston, Illinois, Southern Miss, and ULM.
