6-6, 220-pound Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) star athlete Logan Thomas , who with recent offers from Notre Dame and Connecticut is now up to 17 official scholarship offers, traveled to Blacksburg this past Saturday for Virginia Tech’s first senior camp. Overall, the visit seemed to really impress the Bees star.

“Oh, man. It was an awesome experience,” Thomas said of his time in Blacksburg. “I had a fun time. I wouldn’t have known it would be that fun going into it. I learned some new stuff, pretty much about playing tight end or H-back. I had a good time.”

Thomas had been to Virginia Tech before – he went for the Florida State football game last fall – and had already toured the campus. Saturday was the first opportunity he had to work closely with the coaches, though, and he certainly enjoyed the experience.

“I liked how all the coaches work together and how cool they were,” Thomas said.

Virginia Tech was not Thomas’ only stop over the weekend.

“I went to Wake Forest on Sunday,” Thomas said. “It was about the same as Virginia Tech. They had me doing the same stuff. The coaches were cool as well.”

Other plans for this month include traveling with his team for two 7-on-7 tournaments, including one at Wake Forest and the other at the University of Virginia. He also hopes to go to a day of Virginia’s summer camp.

“I want to know how exactly they are going to use me and how they will get the ball to me,” Thomas answered when asked what he wants to see at Virginia’s camp. “Any way is fine. I’d rather play wide receiver, but nobody seems to be recruiting me there. It is more as an H-back type, which is fine.”

Nothing has been planned for the rest of the summer, although Thomas would like to narrow his list of schools to a more manageable number prior to the start of his senior season. At this time, he continues to keep quiet in terms of naming a favorite.

“I’m really excited [about holding 17 offers],” Thomas said. “Nothing has really changed, though. Everyone is on an even level. I’m really excited about everything.”

One of the top athletes in the nation, Thomas totaled 1500 yards of offense (1,000 passing and 500 rushing) as Brookville’s starting quarterback last season. He played wide receiver his sophomore year. He recently ended his junior outdoor track season, qualifying
