Klay Thompson Schedules Visits

Klay Thompson had a terrific showing in the July evaluation period, as he shot the ball very well all month. Several new schools have entered into the mix of Thompson's recruitment and he'll take official visits to a couple of them next month...

Klay Thompson, 6-5 SR SG Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita, played very well during the July evaluation period. Heading into July, it seemed that Thompson's list was pretty firm. But that changed with his play last month and he now has a couple new schools recruiting him.

I spoke with Thompson today and asked him about the schools on his list.

"Pepperdine, Michigan and Notre Dame are the main ones," said Thompson. "Also Washington State. Colorado, Nevada and Vanderbilt are schools that are kind of on the bubble. I'll most likely choose one of those schools."

Thompson has a couple official visits upcoming.

"I'm going to Notre Dame on September 1st," said Thompson. "Then I'm going to Michigan the following weekend."

I asked Thompson about the possibility of visiting the other schools.

"I went to Nevada a couple weeks ago and I've been to Pepperdine several times," said Thompson. "I've talked with Washington State about maybe visiting there in October and I'm trying to get to Vanderbilt for a visit."

When questioneda about the timing of his decision, Thompson said, "I'll probably decide within a couple weeks of the last visit. So probably sometime in October."

Thompson talked a little about the factors that will influence his decision.

"How I relate to the players and coaches is big," said Thompson. "Also, the style of play is important. The Pepperdine offense is perfect."
