His visit to Pepperdine was an unofficial visit. Thompson is familiar with the Waves program because his older brother, Mychel, will be a freshman this year.
"I liked it a lot and they are at the top of my list and one of my top schools," Thompson said. "I really like it."
"Their style of play and the fact that I could go there and play really early, that's definitely a real attraction. I wouldn't mind going away from home, but I do like that."
Although the Waves are in good shape with Thompson, Notre Dame and Michigan are strong as well. The Fighting Irish will get the first official visit when he visits South Bend on September 1st.
Thompson has developed a good relationship with Mike Brey and he's also intrigued by the academics at Notre Dame.
"I like Coach Brey of course. I also like the academic situation there. I think Coach Brey is a really good coach and I can't wait to visit the campus. I think it'd be a good place to go I just want to visit there first."
Michigan is also on Thompson's visit list. The Santa Margarita (Calif.) Catholic standout is impressed with John Beilein's record and the system that he runs is one that he could succeed in.
"I really like John Beilein. If you can win at West Virginia the skies the limit of what he can do at Michigan."
