Offers For Klay Thompson

Klay Thompson, a 6-5 junior wing from Southern California, had a solid spring and numerous West Coast programs have offered. A couple high major programs are also in the mix for the talented wing.....

Klay Thompson, 6-5 JR SG/SF Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita, is a smooth and skilled wing. Thompson's got a very nice stroke with range to 19-20 feet. His overall ball skills are solid. He still needs to add weight and strength for the next level, but he's among the better wing prospects in the west for 2008.

We spoke with Thompson recently and asked about the schools that are recruiting him.

"I've had offers from Nevada, Pepperdine, Santa Clara, Loyola Marymount and Portland," said Thompson. "Gonzaga and Arizona State have also been showing a lot of interest."

Thompson said he recently took an unofficial visit.

"I went to Santa Clara the day before the Rumble In The Bay tournament," said Thompson. "I liked it a lot. It's a really nice campus and Kerry Keating knows what he's doing. He's got that program on the right track."

We asked Thompson if he feels like he's close to a decision.

"I feel like I'm getting close," said Thompson. "I'll probably decide by the end of July or early August."

Thompson has a couple more unofficial visits coming up.

"I'm supposed to go to San Diego State next week and then to Nevada at the end of June," said Thompson.

We asked Thompson if he would visit Gonzaga or Arizona State if those schools offered.

"I'd love to visit those schools," said Thompson.

Previously, Thompson told us he has a GPA around 3.0.
