Thomas picks up second offer

Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft wide receiver Michael Thomas is putting up tremendous numbers so far this season, proving he's one of the better wide receivers in Southern California, and now some offers have started to come in.
Oregon State offered a couple weeks ago and now Wyoming has entered the fray as well for Thomas, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound three-star prospect who has 54 receptions for 796 yards and 11 touchdowns this season.
On top of the two new offers, Thomas recently accepted an invitation to play in the Under Armour game, another chance to prove he's one of the better receivers on the West Coast. Thomas was outstanding at the Eugene NIKE Camp this past off-season and has done well so far throughout his senior year.
LSU, Michigan, Tennessee, Colorado, Colorado State, Boston College and a few Pac-10 schools are involved in his recruitment, his father said.
No official visits are expected to be scheduled until after the season and Thomas, who plays with USC commit Antwaun Woods and Arizona State quarterback pledge Michael Bercovici at Taft, will almost definitely visit Oregon State for an official at that point.
Whether more offers come in over the next few weeks could determine other trips.
Thomas' father said an unofficial visit to Oregon State is being considered for late November when USC visits Corvallis. Other trips are also being looked at but nothing firm has been set up yet.
Taft defeated Woodland Hills El Camino Real, 38-0, last weekend. The Toreadors face Lake Balboa Birmingham Friday night.
