    Thomas took an unofficial visit to the Colorado campus already. Greg Brown had been his recruiter. Ambrose needs to get on him. No one has offered yet, but it sounds like Iowa and Arkansas are recruiting him the hardest. Good opportunity here to get in first.

    Thomas has taken one official visit, to Kansas State.

    Known as a lockdown corner who excels in man coverage, Thomas has named a top 3 of Colorado, Kansas State and Tulsa.

    If Brown comes to CU (and especially if Ash stays on), it looks like CU will have the inside track to sign Thomas.

    Found a short highlight that shows his quickness: http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1682/bernard-thomas

    Thomas needs to be Brown's first commitment. We need corners. We need speed. Make this happen.

    Any new info? Doesent seem like the new staff wants him. We need corners and it sounds like we wont be getting Mcclure, Jackson, Peters, or Wadood.

    No info, but don't give up.

    I found this bit in his Scout profile: Thomas hopes to major in engineering and reports a 2.8 core GPA and a 21 ACT.

    Doesn't look like we've got any academic issues here. Harrington, Washington and Thomas would be a solid CB class with a lot of speed.

    Ok but does the new staff even want him? According to his Rivals page he doesent even have an offer from us anymore.

    Im not trying to question your Knowledge, you certainley know a lot. But if Adam doesent know that CU is in on him then how do you? The article from scout is from before the new staff was hired. Ambrose, who is no longer here, was recruting him.

    I don't know that CU is still in contact with him. That's why I suggested to Adam that he give Thomas a call. If Adam gets him on the phone and writes an update, what he writes will be news to me one way or the other.

    But the Rivals database didn't list a CU offer or have any of the info about the unofficial that Thomas took to CU or that Brown had been recruiting him pretty heavily before he left.

    In that case I retract my previous statement.

    I don't work for Rivals. That's way overstating things. I just help to moderate their BuffStampede forums and trade a few emails with Adam and SD along with spwildcat and vamosbuffaloes who mod the free board.
