Travis Thomas has already visited Purdue, Notre Dame, Iowa and Northwestern. He has a visit planned for Boston College this week. I caught up with Travis to find out what his plans are after his final visit.
"I have the visit to Boston College this weekend and then I will be committing somewhere shortly afterwards. It's getting closer to my final decision."
I asked Travis how his Iowa visit went. "It wasn't bad but it's not Notre Dame."
I asked Travis if Notre Dame is his leader now. "They always have been. I just didn't want to say that to everyone. Coach Denbrock was here today for about two hours. I think Coach Willingham will be here on Sunday. I just really like the school and the education."
I asked Travis who else is in the race at this point. "Pittsburgh is my other school. I think there is a really good chance to play early there and it's close to home. I like the school but my Mom really wants me to go to Notre Dame. My entire family does and pretty much everyone I know."
I asked Travis if it were likely he would commit to Coach Willingham on Sunday if that goes well. "I would say there is a very good chance of that. I will still visit Boston College but I should have a decision very soon."
Comments. Travis is very close to committing I believe. It sounds like a formality is all that is standing in the way. If Travis does commit to Notre Dame, that would be a very good thing. He is a great kid and will fit in well at Notre Dame.
