Signing day is a little over a month away and Trevion Thompson is one of the top uncommitted wide receivers in the country.
However, before focuses entirely on his recruitment, he will play in the Semper Fi All-American Bowl this weekend.
"I means a lot to know that the Marine Corps noticed my talents and are giving me an opportunity to play in this game," said the 6-foot-3, 188-pound Thompson.
"It also means a lot that they looked at my personality and character. It's just an honor play in this game and to go against top players from all around the country."
Thompson is focused on five schools.
"I'm still considering Clemson, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State and West Virginia," he said.
There had been rumors that some schools moved to ahead of the others, but Thompson said all five schools are even.
The Hillside standout has already taken official visits to Ohio State and N.C. State.
First, he took a trip to Ohio State.
"The visit to Ohio State did a lot for them," Thompson said. "Coach (Urban) Meyer has always been my favorite head coach, too.
"And (former teammate) Jamal (Marcus) is up there, so I knew someone and I felt comfortable around the players. I built a chemistry with them and felt like I was a part of the team."
Next, he went to N.C. State.
"The visit to N.C. State helped out a little bit," he said. "The fact that they've stayed on me has played a big role. I'm looking for consistency and they've given it to me.
"Also on the visit, the chemistry with the players stuck out to me. I went there not knowing them and everything just flowed like I was already on the team."
He will possibly take three more visits.
"I'm going to Clemson on Jan. 17, West Virginia on Jan. 24 and I haven't set a date for Carolina yet because it's a week before signing day," he said. "We're still talking about a date."
Thompson is in no hurry to make a decision.
"For right now, I'll probably make my decision on signing day, but that's not a definite," he said. He will continue to evaluate his options for until that time.
"I just want to take my visits and compare," Thompson said. "That's been my philosophy. I just want to go and take information in, compare and see what school fits me best."
