Daniel Thomas took in Auburn basketball’s loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday and even had the chance to mingle with other prospects at Gus Malzahn’s house over the weekend.
But the three-star safety from Montgomery, Ala., didn’t leave with what he was looking for — a scholarship.
Auburn remains in the fold for four-star safety Nigel Warrior and three-star athlete Stephen Davis, Jr., whom the Tigers envision using at both safety and nickel. Both officially visited The Plains over the past two weekends.
According to Thomas, however, the offer could come soon. He expects to hear from the coaching staff later this evening.
“They’re trying to see what this other recruit is going to do, basically,” said Thomas, who was originally scheduled to visit Clemson this weekend.
“They really can’t do anything about it, but I’m good.”
Thomas, who is also considering South Carolina, North Carolina, Minnesota, Maryland and Clemson, said the visit was a success nonetheless.
“The people, the support, coaches, Gus, and how they all really care about you up there,” Thomas said of what he enjoyed most about Auburn. “They’re not just using you for football.”
The 6-foot, 190-pound standout from Robert E. Lee High School has been recruited more by Auburn in recent weeks following the hiring of defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and secondary coach Wesley McGriff.
