2011 Introduction: Michael Thompson

Michael Thompson, a junior guard from Las Vegas (Nev.), has a wide variety of schools expressing interest in him...

Michael Thompson, 6-1 SR PG/SG Las Vegas (Nev.) Canyon Springs, is a talented prospect with a number of schools showing interest in him at this time.

"I'm hearing from Oregon, UNLV, Stanford, Detroit, SMU, Boise State, Colorado and LSU," said Thompson.

I asked Thompson if any school stands out for him at this time.

"No, they're all in a group right now," said Thompson.

When asked if he had a dream school growing up, Thompson replied, "Not really. I did kind of like UNLV because I saw them a lot."

Thompson has yet to take any unofficial visits, other than to local school UNLV.

I asked Thompson what he is looking for in a school.

"A good school and a good program," said Thompson. "I'd like to stay in the west, but wouldn't mind going to the east."

Thompson said he hopes to reach his decision sometime before his senior season. He said he currently has a 3.6 GPA.
