Pittsburgh Central Catholic sophomore safety Corey Thomas grew up an Ohio State fan, but loves Penn State’s energy
Pittsburgh Central Catholic sophomore safety Corey Thomas has an offer from Buffalo.
Corey Thomas might be one of the most intriguing prospects in Pennsylvania, but it’s not always easy to walk in his shoes.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound, sophomore, safety/receiver from Pittsburgh Central Catholic said, after all, that he is an Ohio State fan.
And, he said, loving the Buckeyes and living in Pennsylvania can be tough.
“Every now and then, people come at me about it,” he said laughing during a break in the action for his EVOLVE team in the East Coast Elite 7v7 tournament at Spooky Nook.
Thomas said he began to appreciate the Buckeyes at a young age.
“The guy that I was working out with started liking them,” he said. “So, I checked them out, and with all the (defensive back) talent they put in the league … it’s crazy.”
Thomas hasn’t heard a peep on the recruiting trail from the Buckeyes, though, before all is said and done, he just might.
He does claim an offer from Buffalo, and said he has been hearing from Pitt, Penn State and West Virginia.
Thomas visited Penn State during the weekend with teammates. He said he hopes to visit the school again this week along with West Virginia.
And, despite being a Buckeyes fan, he said he would love to get an offer from the Nittany Lions, too.
“I like Penn State a lot,” he said. “I love the atmosphere and the energy there with them coming off that Big 10 title.”
