6-6, 220-pound Logan Thomas , one of the top overall athletes in the state of Virginia’s 2009 class, picked up two ACC offers within the past week or so, pushing his Division 1A scholarship offer total to five. The Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) star has attended three junior days this month, including trips to North Carolina and Virginia each of the past two weekends.
“[North] Carolina offered me last week, when I was at their junior day,” said Thomas, who had previous offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. “Maryland offered me yesterday. Alabama hasn’t offered, but my coaches are saying that one probably will come soon.”

UVa was basically the same as the other two junior days at Wake Forest and Carolina. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.”
Fan support seems to be a factor in this race and Thomas was impressed with what he saw in Blacksburg during the Florida State/Virginia Tech game. He compared the atmosphere he experienced at UVa last fall.
“The Virginia fans are definitely not as rowdy as the boys in Blacksburg, but they are crazy in their own way,” Thomas said. “They are still loud. They still get into it. They love their football at UVa.”
Thomas claims no favorite at this point in his recruiting process. Further, he still has not made...
