"I got to talk with Coach Gran at Auburn yesterday," said Deonte Thompson. "He basically talked about how much they wanted me at Auburn and how much they liked me as a player. I had a bunch of other calls yesterday too, but I went to bed pretty early and missed them."
Thompson is keeping an open mind about the recruiting process.
"I'm really interested in the teams that are interested in me. I'm going to wait and see who all I have offers from before I start to look at each of them and decide who I really like. I didn't grow up a favorite of any teams or anything."

Sometimes if a player is quiet about his favorites, taking a look at the
teams he is visiting can give off some clues. That's not the case with Thompson.
"I'm going to a bunch of 7v7 camps with my team this summer. We went to Auburn last year, and I think we're going to Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and LSU. Our coach hasn't given us our schedule yet."
Thompson is working on getting healthy this spring.
"I pulled my hamstring about five weeks ago, and I tweaked it again three weeks ago. I ran pretty well in practice today though, so I'm close to 100%."
Thompson is planning on going to the Scout.com Combine on April 13th.
"We have our spring game that night, but I'm still planning on going to the combine that morning."
Thompson has the type of speed that college coaches across the country covet, and he is one of the top targets on the field as well as off the field for the Class of 2007.
