Four-star wide receiver Michael Thomas probably will not sign with a school on National Signing Day because of a recent death in his family.
The Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft standout has been dealing with the passing of his grandmother in recent weeks, hasn't been able to take as many visits as he'd like and will most likely wait until after signing day to make his final decision. Thomas said he'd like to take some more trips before signing with a school.
Oregon State, Colorado, Houston, Wyoming and Colorado State have already offered Thomas, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound four-star prospect who finished with 86 receptions for 1,756 yards and 22 touchdowns in games this season, breaking all of Steve Smith's records at Taft along the way.

Thomas, who played in the Under Armour game, is also trying to get involved with Arizona State, UCLA and other schools. He also said that Syracuse has recently shown interest.
After an outstanding senior season, Thomas has moved way up the Rivals.com ratings and now is rated No. 36 at wide receiver nationally and No. 30 in the California state rankings.
Dealing with the death of his grandmother has been difficult though and Thomas does not seem to be ready to sign just yet.
