Four-star wide receiver Todd Thomas out of Beaver Falls, Pa. plan to take a few more visits in the near future. Then the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder is looking to cut his list in preparation for a decision early in the year. At this point, the Keystone prospect appears to be favoring two schools.
"I'm going to try to get to Miami, Penn State and Ohio State in the future," he said. "They are all probably going to be in the next month sometime.
"I want to go to these to give everybody a fair chance and see how the campuses are. I'm planning to make my decision about the second week of the season, after our first game."

Has Thomas begun to cut his list yet?
"I'm starting to think about it, but schools keep offering," he said. "Last time someone talked to me I had 17 offers, now I have 25."
One of the more recent offers is Ohio State where former teammate and Rivals No. 1 player in the nation, Terrelle Pryor is going.
"They offered at the end of the school year," he said. "I want to make a name for myself."
At this time, two schools are sticking out.
"The ones that stick out the most are probably Michigan and Pittsburgh," he said. "Pittsburgh is 25 minutes away, right up the street. I like the little city and the head coach and staff. The study rooms and film rooms are real nice and I'm comfortable with them. I went to the spring game and talked to Jonathan Baldwin a bit.
"I like Michigan. I like Coach Rodriguez when he was at West Virginia. I visited there and talked to him and I like his coaching style."
While Thomas is addressing the recruiting situation, the Rivals250 prospect is also adjusting positions on the field.
"They've got me in practice at quarterback instead of wide receiver," he said. "I've got a big binder and I have to know all the routes of the receivers and the quarterback jobs.
"I like it since all the teams know I'm getting the ball. I'll be able to control the game."
