Thomas commits to Bowling Green
Washington High School senior Bryan Thomas made an oral commitment to play football at Bowling Green in the fall of 2010.
Thomas, an Observer-Reporter Elite 11 selection, helped Washington evolve from a 1-8 team in 2008 to one that qualified for the WPIAL Class AA playoffs in 2009. As a two-way starter, Thomas was a dominant defensive end, bone-crushing blocker and big-play tight end.
Bowling Green recruited Thomas (6-4, 230) as a defensive end but is considering using him at tight end.
Akron, Ohio and Toledo also offered scholarships. West Virginia, Wisconsin and Minnesota have shown interest but have not offered. According to Thomas, West Virginia is showing increased interest.
Thomas is the fourth Washington County football player to commit for 2010. Canon-McMillan's Mike Hull (Penn State), Chad Hagan (Ohio State) and Trinity's Ken Wilkins (Michigan) are the others.
Thomas, a cousin of former Wash High standout and Notre Dame starter Travis Thomas, is a three-sport athlete. He also plays basketball and runs track.
