Mitchell Thomas set to visit Irish this weekend

I have a chance to speak with linebacker prospect Mitchell Thomas last night. Thomas has been scheduled to visit Notre Dame this weekend. Thomas has long been rumored to be leaning towards Alabama. Has the coaching change at Alabama had an impact on Mitchell?

"Yeah, I am scheduled to come up there this weekend. I am looking forward to it. I want to see the campus, meet the coaches and the players."

Thomas has yet to schedule any other visits to other schools. "I haven't done it yet. I will probably schedule some visits after this visit. I only had the two visit to Alabama and Notre Dame because I wanted to see if I needed to take more. I will probably schedule some more. Alabama, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Georigia and Florida are the other schools I am considering. I will probably schedule more after my visit to Notre Dame."

I asked Thomas if the coaching change at Alabama has had any impact on him. "It has but I am still interested in Alabama. I like the school so we will just have to see."

Comments. It's going to be interesting to see how Mitchell Thomas likes Notre Dame. If they can make a good impression, they could be in the drivers seat here. I think Mitchell is wide open right now. Top Stories
