He's behind five-star Tate Martell at quarterback on the depth chart at loaded Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High, but that hasn't stopped 2018 recruit Dorian Thompson-Robinson from collecting high profile scholarship offers.
Arizona State became offer No. 10 for Thompson-Robinson this week, joining a list that includes Colorado, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Utah and a handful of others.
Not bad for a guy who didn't start a game as a sophomore and made just 17 throws all season in Bishop Gorman's 15-0 state championship run.
"It's definitely exciting hitting that double digit mark," Thompson-Robinson said. "I didn't expect to get this far this year but just have to keep working. Just being behind Tate and not having a whole bunch of film. I figured I'd go in there in spring ball and build relationships and get a bunch of numbers and not really have as many offers at this point. I'm definitely thankful for them and blessed to have them."
When the Sun Devils extended their scholarship offer, not only did it mean a lot to Thompson-Robinson because it reached a milestone, but also because he already really likes the program.
"It feels great because ASU is one of my top schools right now," he said. "I took a visit down there and really enjoyed that and always have had a good relationship with (tight ends) coach (Del) Alexander. So that was great getting the offer. He comes down to Gorman a lot and we talk on the phone too and he always gives me tips and stuff. We have a good relationship.
"It was really cool there at ASU and I saw what they're doing with their field and facilities and when they get all of that finished it's going to be really nice."
Even though coaches have limited film to go on, it's obvious that Thompson-Robinson is a very impressive athlete with plenty of arm and size. He's played quarterback since he was 8 or 9 and spent a lot of time developing his skill set. Most recently h's worked on improving his throwing base and using his feet and legs properly.
"I'm definitely a thrower first," he said. "Everyone says dual-threat and that I'm a runner but I'm definitely a thrower first. I have a pretty good arm and honestly just want to go somewhere they throw the ball a lot and spread the ball around.
"I've put in tons of work and have had three quarterback coaches help me along the way and I want to thank them for that as well."
After talking with his mother and seeing Martell go through the process ahead of him, Thompson-Robinson is currently planning to wait until late in the process before considering a college commitment.
