    MarshCreek claims this PA lineman likes Ohio State. In an Insiders update he mentioned how he loves Ohio State and is listed as having High Interest. Hopefully he camps here so the coaches can check him out.

    I'll add more info as I find it or I'm sure Buckskin86 will.

    Edit: He was on the 2003 Pennsylvania Preseason All State Team

    Nutty- looks like you have it covered pretty well- here is a quick blurb I found

    Sounds like he has some experience run blocking and that is what he seems to like about tOSU

    How is he rated in the state (top 10 or 20 overall? Top 5 OL?)... what is his speed, and how are his feet?

    I think it's a little too early to see where he'll be rated this year. Rivals doesn't have him in the database and the Insiders does but there is no 40 time listing or write up on his footwork. I suppose there will be more info after the various Nike camps and camps over the summer.

    Here is another article I found where he was listed on the PA Supreme Team along with Skinner, Mitchum, Greg Harrison, and Dave Weber. He was the only junior of the group.

    Devon Lyons and Rory Nicol also made first team.

    What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, no one thought we had a shot at any top Pennsylvania prospects. This year, we should be major players for guys like Thomas. I'm sure guys like Nicol, Skinner and Mitchum will be kick ass recruiters for us in the years to come.

    According the latest Rivals update Thomas' favorite is Ohio State but he's not hearing from the Buckeyes as much as he would like.

    Thomas' favorite is Ohio State but he's not hearing from the Buckeyes as much as he would like.

    it sounds like this is continuing- according to the latest Rivals update Thomas is looking at Pitt, scUM, PSU and VA- no mention of tOSU

    Buckskin or Nutty - will he camp at OSU? Tressel seems to offer quite a few players at camp, or shortly after they attend. OSU could use three or four linemen again this class.

    The only camps I've seen him mention going to are Penn State, Pitt and Virginia. We were his favorite early on so I'm assuming the lack of attention is causing him to look elsewhere. Ohio is pretty loaded this year with offensive lineman so we'll probably only look at elite lineman out of state. Thomas sounds like a pretty good one though.

    If he really wants to go to OSU... he needs to come to camp... no way will he get an offer if he doesn't come to camp...

    Thanks for the info, Nutty.

    I agree, GB, no camp = no offer.

    His ass had better be at camp if he ever wants to play in The Shoe.
     
  13. I love to see the drain of talent from pa here to THE Ohio State University and away from state penn

    Michigan is his current leader, but....

    According to Rivals, May 19.

    It definitely seems like he is interested in OSU (practicially begging for an offer), but that the interest is not yet mutual. Memo to Morgan - attend OSU's camp. If you don't believe me, ask some guy named Incarnato.

    Morgan has apparently dropped OSU from consideration, and is now listing Delaware and Hofstra amongst his favorites. He still has no offers.
