Thomas has Pac-12 frontrunner

UCLA is considered the frontrunner for Michael Thomas and the Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks wide receiver is working on his academics to be in a better position to possibly play for the Bruins.
Others are definitely under consideration but UCLA sure looks good at this point in his recruitment.
"I would say they're definitely the frontrunner," Cosumnes Oaks coach Ryan Gomes said. "He loved his time there and he needs to make sure he qualifies academically for UCLA. There is a little higher level of education there.
"He did retake his SAT and he got a 500 on his math and that helped him and boosted him and he's retaking an English class now so that should help him, too."
Thomas, a 6-foot-3, 168-pound prospect, took his visit to UCLA in September and reportedly loved the trip but wants to take some other trips - and work on his academics - before he makes his commitment.
He visited UCLA with four-star teammate Marcus Rios, who recently de-committed from Boise State and is mainly considering the Bruins, Broncos, Arizona State and Nebraska.
Gomes said Thomas, who also has offers from Nevada, UNLV and Idaho, is planning other visits before making his decision. A trip to either UNLV or Idaho is being planned for Dec. 9 and then Thomas will take a trip to the other school sometime in January.
Before Thomas focuses too much more on recruiting, Cosumnes Oaks has the playoffs and a matchup against Manteca, Calif., this weekend.
Plus, there are many other schools showing interest in Thomas including some Pac-12 schools that might end up offering over the next couple months.
Through 10 games this season, Thomas has 28 receptions for 383 yards and seven touchdowns.
"There are many other schools looking at him," Gomes said.
