It's a great year in Ohio for offensive line prospects and Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edwards guard Joe Thomas is one of the best. The 6-foot-5 and 310 pounder has excellent size, runs well, and has good strength.
Thomas also has plenty of college recruiters in pursuit.
"I have five offers," Thomas said. "Miami of Ohio, Pitt, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Boston College have offered. And Indiana said they are going to offer real soon. West Virginia called and said they are going to offer real soon.
"I'm looking at all of them except Michigan State.
"And I'm also looking at Iowa, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, and Georgia Tech.
"I don't have a favorite at this time.
"I went to Ohio State, Michigan, Pitt, and Miami of Ohio for spring practices or junior days.
"I'll probably go to Ohio State, Pitt, and Michigan for camps. This weekend I'm going to the NIKE Combine in Ann Arbor."
