Two scholarship offers were in hand for Aldine, Texas safety Curtis Thomas but now that number has doubled as more Big 12 teams have taken the next step with their interest.
Thomas is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect who will play quarterback for his Aldine High School team this fall after the departure of senior Terrance Anderson. Like Anderson, the athletic Thomas is watching his recruiting stock rise very quickly.
"Yeah, Kansas and Kansas State just offered me," Thomas said. "It was pretty recent. We're talking about like last week sometime. I love them all though man. It's exciting to get each one. I can't really decide on just one favorite right now."
Even though he may not have one leader, Thomas says he does in fact have a top five.
"The top ones right now would be K-State, Tennessee, LSU, Nebraska, and Florida," Thomas said. "Since I got the Kansas State offer, I've been on the web researching them. They look pretty decent and the coaches seem to be good.
"Really all of those five schools have great defensive backs and obviously that's what I'm looking for."
Thomas says he plans on taking in the NIKE Training Camp in College Station, Texas on April 22. Thomas says he'd also like to visit Kansas State, LSU, and Texas A&M in the near future.
"I just haven't had time to go anywhere yet," Thomas said. "I'm in track right now and I don't have time to go to any of the junior days. I get the letters though. I just can't make it."
Though offers are coming in quickly, the talented Houston-area prospect will not just jump into a decision.
"I've got to wait this thing out," he said. "I need to see what's going to come for me next."
