Four-star cornerback Ambry Thomas (6-foot-0, 174 pounds, Detroit, Mi.) is the No. 2 cornerback in the 2017 class according to 247Sports‘ rankings. On Saturday, he made a visit to the Penn State-Pittsburgh game and it looks like he came away with a very favorable opinion on Pitt.
“They are getting an official, for sure,” Thomas told Rivals.com. “Pitt, to me, is like Michigan State. Every time I go up to Michigan State I get that home feeling and every time I go to Pittsburgh I get that home feeling.”
It also looks like Thomas is considering Michigan and Notre Dame, but he didn’t speak nearly as high on those programs as he does Pitt and Michigan State. According to Rivals, Thomas intends to take two official visits during his senior season, and then the rest once he is done playing.

Pittsburgh has a decent recruiting class going so far, but they could definitely use Thomas more than the others. He would be their top-rated recruit this class, and he could potentially be their top-rated recruit since star wideout Tyler Boyd back in 2013.
Pitt currently ranks 42nd in the overall recruiting rankings over at 247Sports.
