We spoke with Thompson yesterday and asked about the schools he's heard from to date.
When asked if any school stand out for him at this time, Thompson said, "probably Washington and Utah."
We questioned Thompson about the issues he'll consider when choosing a school.
"The coaching will be big," said Thompson. "Also, they players they have and academics. The location isn't a big deal."
We asked if early playing time would be an issue.
"Not really," said Thompson. "Not during my freshman year – maybe I'd even redshirt. But I would like to play some when I get to my sophomore/junior year."
Thompson told us he hasn't given much thought to the timing of his decision. "But I guess if everything was right, I'd do it early," said Thompson.
Thompson hasn't had a chance to take many unofficial visits yet. "I was down in Utah for a camp and I stopped by there for a few minutes to talk, but that was about it," said Thompson.
A good student, Thompson told us he has a 3.4 GPA.
