The 6-foot-4, 210 pounder chose the Fighting Irish over Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas Tech.

Thomas on why he chose Notre Dame

“The thing that stood out to me the most was the life after football aspect,” Thomas said. “Knowing I’m going to get a great education and meet great people while also playing at a high level of football means a lot.”

Loghan Thomas’ relationship with coach Al Washington played a role in his decision.

“They plan on using me at the boundary side end,” Thomas said. “I’m the closest with coach Washington. We talk like 3 times a week and most of the time it’s not even about football. It’s really just checking in and seeing how everything is going.” 

Message to Notre Dame fans

“I can’t wait to get up there and help make a difference on and off the field!”

Thomas ranks as the No. 169 player in the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He also tabs in as the No. 11 EDGE and the No. 30 player in the state of Texas.

On3 is higher than the industry on Thomas, as he ranks as the No. 101 player nationally, the No. 9 EDGE, and the No. 23 player in Texas.

The Lone Star State EDGE joins coach Marcus Freeman and the Fighting Irish’ Top 10 class in the 2024 team rankings. He is accompanied by four-star wide receiver Cam Williams, four-star quarterback CJ Carr, and others.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $77K. The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets high school and college athletes’ projected annual value (PAV). The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
