The latest on Trevion Thompson

WAKE FOREST, N.C. – This past weekend, Trevion Thompson performed extremely well at the North Carolina State 7-on-7 State Championships.

He spoke with FOX Sports Next about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Last month, Trevion Thompson narrowed his list to six schools.

The Hillside playmaker is still considering Clemson, Florida State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State and West Virginia.

"I'm happy to have it down to six," said 6-foot-3, 180-pound Thompson. "It takes a lot of pressure off, but there is still some pressure, though. A lot of people were committing and spots were filling up, so I didn't want to miss my opportunity."

"Nobody is ahead. Everybody is equal right now. All the schools I'm looking at have wide open offenses."

Will location be a factor?

"Location won't really be a big deal for me," he said. "My mom just wants me to go where I can get a great education and get a degree."

Last week, Thompson visited North Carolina.

"The visit to North Carolina was alright," he said. "We just sat around, had fun and watched 7-on-7. I hung with (wide receivers Coach (Gunter) Brewer and spoke to (running backs coach) Coach (Randy) Jordan. They told we that they really want me."

Thompson is looking forward to his senior season.

"I'm just let the game come to me," he said. "Our quarterback (2015 prospect Naszir Forte-Ferguson) will be the key. Everybody says that's a question mark. I don't think he's a question mark – I believe in my quarterback. He's getting better every day. We also have our whole offensive line returning. I believe in everybody on my team."

Thompson is focused on getting better and has high goals for his senior campaign.

"I just have to continue to stay humble and work on my craft," said Thompson. "State championship is the goal. I think if we stay focused, that's a goal we can reach."

The Hillside standout has an idea of when he would like to make his commitment.

"I'll probably try to make a decision by midseason or a little later," he said.

The Hornets open their season at New Bern on August 23.
