Garrett Thomas checks in from Many (LA) at 6-foot-6, 310-pounds. The three-star offensive tackle has early offers from powerhouse programs such as Auburn, Texas, TCU, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Michigan and Miami to name a few. This weekend Thomas will make his first visit to Austin.
Ole Miss and Auburn are near the top for Thomas and his family but offensive line coach Joe Wickline has made a huge push for the standout tackle.
Thomas plays the game the way it's supposed to be played. He has a nasty streak and uses his hands well. He is up and out of his stance quickly and plays through the whistle. Thomas has a great frame, power in his lower body and is a very smart football player.
Texas has three offensive line players committed for the class of 2015. Ronnie Major, Toby Weathersby and Patrick Vahe have all given Texas a verbal commitment at this time. Head coach Charlie Strong and offensive line coach Joe Wickline are searching for two more players to make five for 2015 up front in the trenches. Texas was not on Thomas as early as others but they have more than made up for it with effort and energy. This is a huge visit weekend for Thomas and his family. If things go according to play Texas fans should expect Thomas to make an official visit to Texas later in the season.
