DB/WR Carlos Thomas of College Park, Ga. is scheduled to take an official visit to Ohio State this weekend. We caught up with him before tonight's Orange Bowl for a quick update.

One of the highest-rated uncommitted recruits still showing interest in Ohio State is four-star DB/WR Carlos Thomas (5-11, 170) out of College Park (Ga.) Banneker High School. Thomas is rated as the No. 8 player in the state of Georgia by

"I'll be in Columbus this weekend," Thomas said. "I'm also set up for South Carolina and Florida."

Thomas, who lists his fastest 40 time as being 4.25, is intrigued with the possibility of playing both ways in college.

"Being able to play both ways is something that got me excited about Ohio State," he said.

Thomas, who says playing time, environment and educational possibilities will be key factors in his decision, got a chance to see Ohio State play in the Alamo Bowl.

"I really liked what I saw out there," Thomas said. "They were really getting after it."

Thomas says he will be a signing day commit, and he doesn't see make himself making a decision before then. He had been a baseball player before this year but has been running indoor track and said he plans on playing football in the spring -- in college.

"I will be wherever I'm going for spring ball," he said.

On a final note, Thomas predicted that USC would win tonight's Orange Bowl, but like this reporter, he feels Auburn is the best team in the country.
