Holding offers from Colorado, Rice, and Utah, Galena Park (Texas) North Shore athlete Micah Thomas (6-1, 180) thought he might be able to make a decision before the start of the 2012 football season. It was certainly a possibility, but he decided no decision was the best decision at least for now.
"I thought about that, but I didn't want to jump the gun too early," Thomas said. "I want to make sure I'm 100-percent sold on where I want to go. I want to completely fall in love with the school. I don't want to make a decision prematurely."
College coaches are watching closely with interest coming from near and far. Texas A&M and Baylor sent him a few things, and Air Force, Navy, Northwestern, Houston, UTEP, Kentucky, Kansas, Kansas St., and Oklahoma St. have all shown considerable attention.
It's going real good," Thomas said of the recruiting process. "They can finally call me again. I got a couple of calls last night and the night before. It's going pretty good."
Thomas is a versatile athlete, but plays quarterback for the North Shore Mustangs. As a recruit he is projected as an athlete and college coaches feel he could play on either side of the ball.
He has yet to schedule any official visits but he said he could take an unofficial to Houston in the near future. As for favorites on the recruiting front, he is currently keeping an open mind.
"Standing out? I don't really have a favorite," Thomas said. "Of course the three teams that have offered me but I don't really have a favorite."
Since deciding to hold off on a preseason commitment, Thomas is also taking a more patient approach to his decision making process.
"I don't really have a timetable. When schools show interest in me I go look them up and see what they have to offer. Whatever happens, happens, and I don't really have a timetable.
