Thomas is an outside linebacker prospect from Smyths Alabama. Thomas has recently listed the Irish as his favorite. Has that changed recently? "Nobody is really standing above the rest right now. I just want take the rest of my visits and see which school fits me best."Mitchell has set three more visits. "I go to Auburn this weekend. I have Alabama on January 17th and Georgian on January 24th. I will probably take my last official visit. I only have South Carolina coming for an in-home visit so I might take a visit there."
Thomas was leaning to Alabama before the coaching change. Once the coaching change happened, Thomas was unsure on Alabama and Notre Dame was listed as the leader. I asked Thomas if he talked to Coach Price and what he thought. "Yeah, I did. We had a good conversation. I scheduled a visit there."
Is Mitchell still considering Notre Dame strongly? "Yeah, I am. I still like Notre Dame and I am still very interested in Notre Dame."
It appears it will be quite some time before Mitchell Thomas makes his decision. He said he will take all five of his visits and decide sometime shortly after his visits.
