Michael Thomas lands offer from UCLA 

September, 19, 2011
Wideout Michael Thomas (Elk Grove, Calif./Cosumnes Oaks) took an official visit to UCLA over the weekend and as expected, picked up an offer from the Bruins. Is the emerging receiver close to jumping on it?

Thomas is a late-bloomer who the Bruins just started to recruit with more earnest in the last month or so. UCLA went out, saw him play in a game two weeks ago and offered an official visit for this past weekend.

"It was a great experience," Thomas said. "UCLA is an incredible place and they have some legendary athletes attend the school there. The highlight of the visit for me had to be walking into the hall of fame with Coach [Rick] Neuheisel and just seeing how many great former Bruins are out there.
