Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) athlete Logan Thomas still seems a long way from being able to make a college choice, but he has made at least one important decision in his recruiting process. The 6-6, 220-pound junior has decided which sport he wants to play in college.

“I’m going with football. You can put that down,” Thomas said. “I really haven’t seen any interest in basketball and I think I can go past the next level in football, so that is why I’m going with football.”

Thomas has enjoyed recruiting success recently, reaching double-digit scholarship offers. Clemson, Duke, N.C. State and Tennessee are the latest programs to offer, joining Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and West Virginia. And more schools, including Alabama, Michigan, Pitt and Stanford, are showing significant interest.

“I’m definitely excited by all my options,” Thomas said. “It is great to have so many options and I’m interested in all of them. I don’t have any favorites right now.”

Thomas is currently focused on preparing for football season – he has decided not to play AAU basketball and is hitting the weight room five days a week – and making unofficial visits to potential suitors. This Saturday, he will head to Knoxville for the University of Tennessee’s Spring Game. He says he will likely go to West Virginia and other schools this summer.

Thomas has already visited both Virginia and Virginia Tech. Most recently, he headed to UVa for a spring practice and he has been to Charlottesville on several occasions. He has been to Virginia Tech twice…once for the Florida State game last fall and again for an unofficial visit with his parents.

“I like Virginia a lot,” Thomas replied when asked to give his opinion of the in-state programs. “It is a great school with great academics and great coaches. They are a bunch of cool guys up there. Of course, the academics there are among the top in the country.

Virginia Tech is a great program. It is a great school, too. I’ll be heading back there sometime this summer.”

In his junior season, Thomas passed for approximately 1,000 yards and rushed for 500 more in 11 games as Brookville’s starting
