Recently College Park (Ga.) Banneker wide receiver/cornerback Carlos Thomas committed to South Carolina, but already rumors have circulated that Thomas may not be through. Rumor has it that he could still be eyeing a certain Big 12 school, so Rivals.com went straight to the source to find out.
"I do not know if he is taking a visit to Oklahoma or not for sure," Banneker head coach Ty Crane said. "I have heard that rumor as well, but I have not had the chance to ask him about, but if you will call me back I will ask him.'
So Rivals.com called back later in the day and Crane had talked to his star prospect.
"He said that he had thought about taking the visit, but doesn't think he is going to now. Coach Spurrier was in here today and Carlos was with him when I asked him the question and that might have had something to do with, but Carlos usually isn't the type to hide anything."
The 5-foot-11, 165-pound Thomas, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds and the shuttle in 4.41 seconds, is ranked as the No. 78 player in the nation overall and the No. 9 wide receiver in the nation by Rivals.com.
