Many (La.) 2015 offensive tackle Garrett Thomas grabbed offer No. 5 yesterday....
Thomas looking for a fifth
Thomas will take part in LSU's linemen camp next Saturday with hopes of landing an offer from the Tigers. Thomas has been on LSU's radar since before the spring evaluation period started, and he has maintained consistent contact with the coaches through the summer.
Thomas visited campus in March for one of LSU's spring practices, and he'll return to the ponderosa next week as a camper.
"I'm looking forward to getting to work with Coach Stud and getting to see all the coaches again and talk to them," Thomas said. "I talk to Coach Ensminger weekly pretty much. We have a pretty good relationship. I get along with them pretty well and I enjoy being around those people."
At 6-foot-6, 295 pounds, Thomas is an athletic tackle prospect with great size for his age. Thomas primarily plays right tackle at Many High School, and likely projects to that position on the next level.
LSU has not yet offered an offensive lineman from Louisiana in the 2015 class, and Thomas would be honored if he became the first.
"It would mean a lot because that's the home-state college," Thomas said. "Everybody around here would love to go to that college. It would definitely be one of my leaders…It's a great atmosphere down there. The people at LSU are the people I like to be around."
With offers from Auburn, Michigan, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State, with several other schools firmly in the picture, Thomas said he plans to continue going through the recruiting process, whether or not LSU offers at camp.
"I think I'd wait it out a little while," Thomas said. "I'm still taking in the interest. I'm not sure right now. Lately [LSU has] started recruiting me a lot harder than they were."
