Lakota West Defensive End Thomas 'Wide Open'

What is the latest with the recruitment of DE Solomon Thomas? And where does Ohio State stand after deciding not to sign Thomas's teammate Josh Chichester? We caught up with Thomas for the answers.

Defensive end Solomon Thomas (6-6, 225, 4.7) of West Chester (Oh.) Lakota West is sure to get plenty of attention from major colleges this year. As a matter of fact, the attention is already very heavy.

"I have offers from Illinois, BC, North Carolina State, Miami of Ohio, and Arizona State said they had sent an offer but I haven't seen it yet," Thomas said.

In recent years, Lakota West has sent two top prospects to Ohio State -- offensive lineman Steve Rehring and defensive lineman Brandon Maupin. In 2005, Lakota West wide receiver Josh Chichester committed to Ohio State but wound up signing with Louisville after the Buckeyes took his scholarship off the table due to academics.

There has been concern among Ohio State fans that the incident with Chichester may make it harder for the Buckeyes to recruit Thomas, and there have even been rumors that Thomas is not an Ohio State fan. That, however, seems to be news to Thomas.

"I have no idea where all that came from about me hating Ohio State," he said. "That is absolutely untrue. I love Jim Tressel. I was just at Ohio State for pro day. I have been back again since. Why would I do that if I hated Ohio State?

"I just got six letters from Ohio State in one day. I keep them all. I haven't a clue how that got started. The only thing I am sure of is it didn't come from me."

Concerning colleges, Thomas currently says he is "absolutely wide open," and he also is unsure what he will do in the coming months regarding summer camp.

"I really don't know what I am going to do about camping," Thomas said. "I don't see myself as a camp guy. My film is what sells me. I would workout for any school that came into Lakota to see me. I would not have any problems with that."

Thomas currently runs a 4.7 and is training to improve his speed.

"I am in Excel training right now," he said. "I want to get my speed down. I am up to 225. That is 10 pounds heavier than I played last year." 

Despite not having much of an idea where he will play his college ball, Thomas knows that he does not want to wait much longer to make a choice.

"I want to get this over with," he said. "I take my test in June and as soon as I get my results it will be time to make a decision. There is no 'I' in team, and I am a team first guy. I want to help Lakota West be the best team we can be this fall and I can't do that while I am worried about recruiting."

What will Thomas be looking for in a college?

"Education is going to mean everything as far as my decision is concerned -- what school can help me get the best education I can and help me after graduation," he said. "Having a good relationship with the coaches and other players will be important too."

Thomas had 58 tackles (second on team) with 30 solos, 13 tackles-for-loss, seven sacks, nine pass break-ups and one fumble forced last season. Lakota West was 7-3 on the season.
