Multiple Offers For Thompson

Stephen Thompson, a very talented junior guard out of Southern California, has a number of West Coast offers...

Stephen Thompson, 6-3 JR SG Torrance (Calif.) Bishop Gorman, is one of the best shooters in the West Coast class of 2015 and among the top guards overall. I spoke with him recently in Las Vegas and asked about the schools that are recruiting him.

"I have offers from Gonzaga, Northern Arizona, San Diego State, Loyola Marymount and Fresno State," said Thompson.

When asked if he has a sense which schools are recruiting him the hardest, Thompson said, "all of those schools."

I asked Thompson what will be important to him when he chooses a school.

"Of course a good basketball program, but good academics as well," said Thompson. "Location doesn't matter."

Thompson said he has taken an unofficial visit to San Diego State.

"I liked the school and the campus," said Thompson. "I like the coaching staff."

Thompson said he has a 4.3 GPA and he'll probably wait until his senior year to choose a school.
