Travis Thomas Update

<P>I spoke with Travis Thomas today. Travis is a runningback from Washington, PA. The 6-1 200 pound speedster is interested in the Irish and I think the Irish are very interested in him as well. </P>

I called Travis Thomas because he was kind enough to send a photo for the site. Travis has offers from Northwestern, Syracuse, Boston College, Pitt, Penn State, West Virginia, Iowa, Wisconsin, Duke, U Conn, Vandy and Cincinnati.

"I am still very interested in Notre Dame. They didn't have my film or my transcript. I guess it was late getting to them. They have it now and they seem pretty interested now." Thomas said he has his first game on August 31st and that he plans to take at least one unofficial visit to school but he isn't sure which one.

I asked Travis why he is interested in Notre Dame. "I have always like the school. I don't know what it is but I have always liked Notre Dame. It's the tradition and they way they have won. They send a lot of players to the NFL and there is just something about the place." Travis said he is pretty open. He is interested in all the schools that have offered him plus Notre Dame. He said he wasn't sure if he would take all his official visits and plans to have a decision shortly after the end of his season.

Comments. As always, these comments are just my own personal opinion. Travis has a very big interest in Notre Dame. If they offer him (which I think they will), I think Notre Dame will slide right up to the top of his favorite list. I have heard he is a very fast and physical player. A fantastic kid as well. Keep an eye on him. Top Stories
