Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward offensive lineman Joe Thomas, who committed to Pitt during the summer, made an unofficial visit to Ohio State last month when the Buckeyes played Iowa. After the game he said he would probably be back in Columbus for an official visit sometime down the road.
Is Thomas still thinking about an official visit to Ohio State, and are other schools also recruiting Thomas?
"I'm not sure if I'll make an official visit (to Ohio State) or not," Thomas said. "Coach (Tim) Beckman and coach (Jim) Tressel call each week.
"Cincinnati, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Virginia call some too. I'm not sure if I'll visit any of those schools or not.
"I'm still committed to Pitt. Pitt and Ohio State call each week. Most of the others call every other week.
"Close to the end of the playoffs I'll decide if I'll visit anyone besides Pitt."
The 6-foot-5 and 310-pound Thomas, the No. 24 prospect in the state of Ohio in the Rivals.com player rankings, has led his team to a 7-0 record. He has graded out at 92% blocking efficiency and has 62 knock down blocks.
