"I'll probably commit"

When not mowing lawns or making pizzas, Terence Thomas is always working hard at his other job - offensive lineman for the Caldwell Cougars. And like everything the 6-foot-8, 295-pounder from Idaho does, it's done with gusto.

"Yeah, it's about an acre and a half, and it was raining, but it only took a couple of hours," Thomas told Scout.com of the lawn he mowed Sunday before coming home for a well-earned sandwich. "I work at a pizza place too, but I don't get paid in pizza."

He admitted, however, that it's tempting for him to spend his paycheck on his favorite pie - all meat. And when one takes a look at Thomas when he plays football, it doesn't take long to find the beef along the Cougars' front line.

Thomas' play has already earned him scholarship offers from Idaho State and Washington (his father played college football at ISU), and even though the recruiting process is in it's infancy, Terence knows where he wants to play his college ball.

The University of Washington.

"I'm heading up there for the spring game on Saturday," Thomas said. "I've already called Coach (Randy) Hart that I'm coming. I'm going to talk to the coaches, watch the game and hopefully get another tour of the campus. And check out the town of Seattle, of course."

Thomas earlier told Scout that he would most likely be making a commitment to the Huskies soon, but wasn't sure at the time if he was going to be able to make that pledge in person. Now that he has definite travel plans for this upcoming weekend, does he intend to follow through with his initial thought?

"I'm probably going to commit to them," he said.
