Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) athlete Logan Thomas followed through on his plans to narrow his list of schools, cutting his list to seven finalists yesterday. The 6-6, 225-pound rising senior, who has received close to 20 Division 1A scholarship offers, says that it is a “relief” to have a more manageable number of schools to consider.
“Seven schools made the cut. They are Virginia, Virginia Tech, Clemson, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Tennessee and West Virginia,” said Thomas, who claims no favorite among the group.
Despite the fact that the finalists are relatively close to his home, Thomas says location was not a factor in his decision.
“The main thing was just how comfortable I felt with these colleges I chose,” Thomas said. “The location was just coincidence.”
Seeing Virginia and Virginia Tech on the list comes as no surprise, as Thomas raved about both programs in the most recent update (which is linked below). The Brookville star enjoyed his time in Blacksburg for Tech’s senior camp last month and he came away very impressed by an unofficial visit to Charlottesville last week.
Thomas was asked to name one key positive factor for each in-state program.
“With Virginia, it is how much they use their tight ends and my future in that,” Thomas replied. “With Virginia Tech, I just felt extra comfortable there. I have a good time every time I go there.”
Thomas, who likely projects as a tight end/H-back recruit on the next level, is not sure which schools, if any, he will visit again this summer. There is a chance he heads back to Virginia Tech tomorrow, but that seems unlikely at the moment. The only events certain on the schedule are a Rivals camp later this month and a trip to Wake Forest for a team 7-on-7 passing league.
There is also no clear cut next move for Thomas in his decision making process. His main focus for now will be weightlifting with his Brookville teammates in preparation for the 2008 season. After falling short in a strong run to a state championship last season, Brookville, which captured the Division 3, Region III championship in 2007, is hoping to capture that state title this season.
