Thomas Has Impressive List of Offers

DeSoto, Tex. is home to wide receiver Michael Thomas. The 5-10, 175-pound Thomas is blessed with 4.3 speed and plenty of schools are interested. Thomas already has nine offers and many more are likely on the way. Are the Irish interested in Thomas? Is he interested in Notre Dame? What are his summer plans? We spoke with Thomas to find out the latest on his recruitment.

Michael Thomas says he can't remember his stats, but plenty of schools are interested. "I have offers from Notre Dame, Kansas, Wisconsin, Boston College, Utah, Arizona, Tulane, Texas Tech and Georgia Tech," said Thomas. "I think there are a few more, but I can't remember them right now."

The Irish have been recruiting Thomas for a while. "I first talked to coach Mattion at my school," Thomas said. "He offered me over the phone, and then it came in the mail the next day."

Thomas also says he's interested in Notre Dame. "It's Notre Dame," he said. "They play on national TV every week. The program has the possibility to win, and their academics are pretty high. I'm definitely interested. I don't know a lot about Notre Dame, yet."

Thomas says he plans to get to know a few schools better this summer. "I'm not going to any camps," Thomas said. "I'll probably take a few unofficial visits to some of these schools. My parents want to get out to Notre Dame some time this summer. I'll probably check out a few more schools as well."

An early decision could be in the making for Thomas. "There's a possibility I might decide early," said Thomas. "If I find the right school that I feel comfortable, I might commit. I'd say there is a pretty good chance I'll decide early."

Does Thomas have any leaders at this point? "I'd say Notre Dame, Arizona, Wisconsin and Texas Tech," Thomas said.

Thomas is also a solid student with a self-reported 4.3 on a 5.0 scale in his core. He's also qualified with a 19 on his A.C.T.

Comments: Thomas appears to fit the speed receiver role the Irish are looking for. He has an impressive list of offers so far, and we expect more to come later. He might make an early decision so we'll have to keep a close eye on him. I'd say the Irish have a good shot to land Thomas. He appears pretty interested in Notre Dame. Top Stories
