Thomas gets offer, sets visit

<P>Travis Thomas has been waiting for an offer from Notre Dame for a while. That offer finally came for Travis. He has also set his visit to Notre Dame and I talked to Travis about his plans for the recruiting season. </P>

Travis Thomas's team is 3-2 so far this year. Travis has been kind of banged up this year but has played in three games where he has rushed for 350 yards. "Our team is finally starting to come together now. The offensive line is really starting to come together so hopefully I can have some good games coming up."

Travis recently got an offer from Notre Dame. "I talked to Coach Willingham on Sunday I believe. The offer came Fed Ex the next day. I was really happy about that. Coach Willingham is a really good guy. He is very intelligent and serious but he is also has a funny side and isn't so serious. I really liked him. I set up my visit to Notre Dame on November 2nd." Travis had told me earlier that if Notre Dame offered, they would become his leader. I asked if that was still the case. "Yeah, that is still the case. They are my leader at this point. They are recruiting me as a runningback."

Travis also has a visit with Iowa scheduled for November 22nd. He also has offers from Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Syracuse, Wisconsin, Purdue, Pittsburgh, Penn State, West Virginia, Duke and Boston College.

I asked Travis if he might commit on his visit to Notre Dame since they are his leader. "No, I am sure I will take at least two visits. I know I will take the Iowa visit for sure and probably either Northwestern or Boston College."

Comments. Travis is a great kid. He would fit in very well at Notre Dame. I do think he wants to check out other schools before he decides. I think he really likes Notre Dame and Willingham. I expect that he will end up being Irish. Top Stories
