Coffeyville (Kan. ) Community College will get to play for the Jayhawk Conference championship this upcoming weekend in the playoffs. However, they won't meet Butler County C.C. after the Grizzlies were upset last weekend by Dodge City. The Red Ravens did their part, winning 40-26 behind the big play of four-star receiver Devin Thomas.
"I did pretty good for the day," Thomas, who is 6-foot-2, 215 pounds and ranked as the No. 15 juco player in the nation by Rivals.com. "I had five catches for 167 yards and two touchdowns, so it wasn't a bad day for me."
With one final game, a bowl game and December graduation on the horizon, Thomas is starting to look a little more at the recruiting process. He has visits set to Kansas State on November 18 and Arkansas on December 2. He's also worked out a couple other visits.
"I have another set up so far for USF on December 9," Thomas said. "I think I got one set up for Michigan State on November 12, but I haven't gotten it confirmed yet. The rest of the visits are the same.
"I've been getting a lot of contact from Oklahoma State and Nebraska lately. Right now the main schools I'm looking at are Arkansas, Michigan State, Kansas State, USF and Oklahoma State. Michigan State and Arkansas are probably a little out in front of the other teams right now."
"The most interesting coach I talk to is coach (James) Shibest from Arkansas," Thomas said. "He's a character, man. He's very young and he has a younger mentality, you know. He's just a real funny guy.
"I like Michigan State a lot because of their passing scheme. They throw the ball all over the field and being a receiver I like that. Arkansas is kind of the bottom of the SEC, but they're a few players away from breaking out to the top, I think."
