Thomas grabs IU offer
Junior offensive lineman Jared Thomas of Indianapolis (Ind.) Cathedral picked up his fourth offer on Sunday when the Hoosiers offered the in-state lineman during junior day. "It was actually during the basketball game today," Thomas said. "There was about three or four minutes left in the second half, and Coach (Kevin) Wilson pulled me aside and told me that I was receiving an offer. He told me that he liked what he saw at one of my basketball practices, especially my footwork and physicality. He wants to be in touch regularly going forward." Thomas also holds offers from Northwestern, Purdue and Toledo. "I was talking with (Lawrence Central junior linebacker) Darrin Kirkland the other day, and we were just talking about how crazy it is that since the 1st grade we dreamed about playing football in college, and now it's happening. It's kind of surreal." Dialing in on the Hoosiers, Thomas said his favorite aspect of the program was the family feel. "Indiana is great," Thomas said. "They are such a family there, everyone gets along and supports one another. That's going to be big with me, how the coaches and players interact and how the players interact with each other. Indiana is really big on that, and it was awesome to see." This spring, Thomas also plans on visiting Northwestern and Purdue.
