Thomas Flowers has earned his label as one of the top running backs from the Peach State. He's received some impressive offers but isn't ready to narrow things down just yet.
"I've been offered by Georgia, Virginia, Florida, and Auburn but I don't have a leader yet. I've visited Georgia, Florida, and Georgia Tech unofficially."
Flowers is a 5-foot-10, 185-pound elusive athlete from Mableton (Ga.) Pebblebrook who lines up as both a running back and a defensive back. What's at the forefront of his mind right now?
"I should be setting my visits up shortly, I'll probably take most of them in January."
Flowers had a great regular season this year.
"I led the county in rushing with 1,127 yards and 15 touchdowns with 158 carries. Defensively I had 39 tackles and one interception. I'm on all the special teams units. I'm the deep snapper on the punt team and return kicks and punts. I averaged about 25 yards a return on both punt and kickoff returns.
So when would Flowers like to make his final decision?
"I'll probably be narrowing down my list after I make my visits. I don't know if that will be too late for some teams, but that's not what I'm really worried about right now.
"I just want to get on the campus and see how the environment is and talk to some of the players and see how the coaches are. I want to see what they're like not as coaches, but as people."
