Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) junior Logan Thomas is certainly off to a successful start to his recruiting process. A prospect in football and basketball, the 6-6, 220-pound Thomas has already received official scholarship offers in both sports. The focus right now is on the sport he is currently playing, football, but the sport he’ll ultimately choose to play in college is a question.
“Logan is being heavily recruited in two sports,” Brookville head football coach Jeff Woody said. “There is at least one school a week to come in for basketball, mainly from Conference USA. I know Tulane has offered in basketball and Akron has offered in basketball. There is at least one school a week in football, too.”
Last month, the University of Virginia became the first major program to extend a scholarship offer in football. Other ACC programs are showing heavy interest, though, and more offers could be on the horizon. Coach Woody believes it is just a matter of time before coaches from all across he country get involved with his talented recruit, who plans on making an unofficial visit to Chapel Hill (N.C.) this Saturday.
“He is going to UNC this weekend to visit them,” Woody said. “He is going to see Virginia Tech play Florida State. He has been to UVa a couple of times. Al Groh has offered him a scholarship.
“Virginia is the first major offer for football. Virginia Tech came by and watched us versus Rustburg last Friday. One play was like it was scripted. The coach from Virginia Tech was sitting in the end zone. Logan fakes to the running back and keeps it 75 yards for the touchdown. He ran right by the Virginia Tech coach after the score. It was like the coach was meant to be there. I think the Virginia Tech coach saw what he needed to see. I expect Virginia Tech to jump on shortly. Once word gets out, I think his recruitment will really pick up.”
Both Virginia and Virginia Tech have expressed interest in both sports.
“Virginia Tech is recruiting him for basketball and Virginia has contacted him for basketball, too,” Woody said. “Both have come by the school and are excited about what he brings to the table athletically.”
On the gridiron, Thomas...
