INSTANT UPDATE: Michael Thornton

Get an exclusive recruiting update on 4-star defensive tackle Michael Thornton's recruitment and where things currently stand with the Nittany Lions.

FOS Recruiting Analyst Cory James caught up with Scout 4-star defensive tackle Michael Thornton to get an update on his recruiting situation. Here's is Cory's update:

I spoke with Thornton last night. He mentioned that he does not have any more visits planned at this time to any schools; the Penn State visit was his last visit so far.

I asked when a decision may be made or if he will take some more visits and he said he wasn't ready to say when a decision may be made. He also didn't say whether he would or would not be taking more visits.

I did ask him about his visit to Penn State and if it had any impact that his parents could not make the trip with him. He mentioned that his dad had to work and could not make the visit, but he did visit with family during his trip. Thornton has an aunt in D.C. that drove up to meet him at Penn State for his official visit.

Thornton also mentioned that he is hoping that his Dad can see Penn State in the coming months. I would take this as encouraging news. He has no visits scheduled, yet he hopes his dad can see Penn State, so I am guessing either Penn State gets a second visit or Dad can see Penn State when he is moving Thornton in.
