Thomas set for ND visit this weekend

<P>Notre Dame is expecting a visit this weekend from one of their top tailback targets. Travis Thomas is set to visit the Irish officially this weekend and has a few more visits lined up as well. Any chance Travis will commit to Notre Dame this weekend? </P>

Travis Thomas is having a pretty good season so far. His team is off to a 6-3 start and enter the state playoffs on Friday. Travis says he has rushed for over 1000 yards and 8 touchdowns so far this. "We run out of the wishbone mostly so I don't get as many carries and most tailbacks. I have been having a good year so far. I am not sure how many carries I have. It's not that many because of the offense we run. We do use some I formation at times."

Travis is set to visit Notre Dame this weekend and I asked him what he is excited to see. "I just want to see the campus, meet the coaches and the players. I want to check out the academics and I am excited about the game of course."

Travis has also visited Purdue already and I asked him about that visit. "It was nice. I liked it a lot better than I thought I would. There is a lot more to do there than I thought there would be."

Thomas also have a visit set with Iowa for November 23rd. "I have been talking to Boston College about visiting there on December 6th but I haven't finalized that and Northwestern wants me to go there on November 15th. I am trying to decide if I will take that visit or not."

Travis has been watching the Irish play every week. "The game last week was very impressive. Nobody thought they would win and they did. They have been playing very well." I asked Travis if he might commit to Notre Dame this weekend if he really liked it there. "There is no chance of that. I will probably take all my visits. I know I will visit Iowa for sure. My Mom is going with me this weekend and we have decided that I want to take my visits and then be done by Christmas."

Comments. I think Travis likes Notre Dame quite a bit. I think he will like the school even more after he visits. I am sure Travis is well aware of the tailback prospects they have committed and those they continue recruiting. It will be interesting to see what he has to say after his visit. I don't think he will commit this weekend.
