Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) athlete Logan Thomas has quickly become one of the most highly sought after recruits in the East, having now received 16 Division 1A scholarship offers. The 6-6, 220-pound junior admits that it is “real nice” to have so many opportunities, but, with so many options, he is only focused on narrowing his list before the start of his senior year as opposed to making a summer decision.
“It is definitely to the point of seeing if I can just cut it down before next year,” said Thomas, whose offers include Auburn, Boston College, Clemson, Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and West Virginia, among others. “I’m not sure how many I’ll narrow it down to…whether it’s five, eight or 10.”
Thomas, who claims “it is too early to tell” if any schools are certain to make his initial cut, has already visited several programs including North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech. His most recent visit was to Knoxville for UT’s Spring Game.
“It was a good trip,” Thomas said. “I had fun. I talked to a lot of coaches. They have real good fan support. There were like 30 or 40-thousand people there for the Spring Game.”

Brookville returns 18 starters from last season’s Division 3, Region III championship squad. Thomas, who totaled approximately 1,500 yards of offense from the quarterback position last season, plans to work with top receiving target Corby Weiss as well as cousin and top rising junior, Zack McCray.
“The real work comes this summer,” said Thomas. “I’ll work with a guy in Lynchburg I’m pretty good friends with who used to play quarterback. I’ll work with him some, then do some 7-on-7’s and then work on...
