S Justin Bridges-Thompson Profile
Justin-Bridges Thompson nabbed his first offer in May when Pittsburgh stopped by Spartanburg High School to watch during the evaluation period.
Shortly thereafter, the 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete began what would be a busy summer.
"I started at the Nike Camp at Duke. I did really well there. I was one of the top underclassmen at that camp," he recently told CUTigers.com "After the camp there, I went to Wake Forest. I did well up there and came back home with a scholarship offer.
"After Wake Forest, I was planning on going to Virginia Tech. But, for high school, at Spartanburg High, we had a 7-on-7...I didn't get a chance to go to Virginia Tech. I went to South Carolina twice."
Bridges-Thompson has ties to South Carolina. His cousin is former Gamecock wide receiver Sidney Rice.
"I don't have a favorite college football team," Bridges-Thompson said. "I had family members that played at South Carolina. I've got some family members that love South Carolina. I've got interest in any college team that offers. That's what I'm going to look at."
Though Clemson has not offered, he has "strong interest" in the Tigers.
"Earlier in the summer, I had gotten contacted with Clemson. As far as their camp, I was hoping for a one-day camp. They had a three-day camp and that would have interfered with my football here, so I wasn't able to make it," Bridges-Thompson said.
He started three games at safety for Spartanburg as a sophomore. This fall, he'll play middle linebacker for the Vikings.
Before transferring to Spartanburg, Bridges-Thompson attended Gaffney High School as a freshman.
Clemson wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott serves as the primary recruiter for Bridges-Thompson.
