Recruits ask me all the time, how do I get offers? Besides having a good highlight tape and solid grades in the classroom? Go to camp! One player who has done all of that including the latter is 2012 cornerback Reggie Thomas. His latest camp stop earned him his second scholarship offer and we talked with him about it all.
This past weekend he was at Mars Hill camping and the weekend before that he was at Wofford. While many prospects balk at going to school camps it has been a truly rewarding experience for Thomas in more ways than one. He talked about this past weekend in North Carolina.
"Mars Hill went real well. It was a really good experience for me. I met a lot of new competition that made me improve my game."
His previous camp stop at Wofford brought him some this past week.
"I found out that they (Wofford) offered me Saturday. It was a big surprise. I couldn't believe it at first."
Smith got his first offer from Newberry College so how does it feel for him landing number two?
"It feels real good. Just to know that I have another school out there that wants me to play for them. It motivates me a lot too. I just want to go out to the camps and show them I can play at the next level."
Thomas says there are still some schools out there that he'd like to hear more from soon.
Thomas says he's already made plans to camp with South Carolina, Coastal Carolina, and Charleston Southern next month. He's hoping to earn some more camp invitations so he'll have an opportunity to impress more coaches in hopes of earning additional offers.
During our conversation with the Abbeville standout he revealed that the gridiron isn't the only place where he's a standout performer.
"As of my junior year I had a 4.095 GPA at the end of the year and I pulled in a composite score of 20 on the ACT."
That being said expect more schools to come calling soon due to his abilities as a superb student-athlete and SCPrepNation.com will continue to bring you the breaking news first when it comes to Thomas and other top prospects here in the Palmetto State.
