Recruiting: Clemson has been the favorite for a while now and the Tigers won out in the end. Schools like North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, and West Virginia hung around, but Clemson is the school Thompson chose.

Scouting Report: Thompson is a smooth wideout with hands and a high ceiling. He still has a lot of room to develop, but he has a lot of tools that drew many college programs his way.

His size and length stand out and makes him a real weapon inside the red zone. He is a great jump ball wideout and he can go up and get the ball. He has long arms, he extends well, and this will make him that much more valuable on the next level.

His speed is good, but not great. He has better than average quickness and he can separate due to the ground he covers with his long strides. He needs to work on being more explosive off the line.

When it comes to running routes, he is solid, but he can still improve in this area. He needs to work on getting off press coverage better and strength will help with that. He displays good quickness, but he can more precise with his cuts in and out of his breaks to set up the defenders.

One thing Thompson is very good at is shielding the defenders with his body. He knows how to use his frame to his advantage to give the quarterback a window to throw the ball to.

Overall, Thompson is a talented wide receiver with a lot of potential. His hands are strong, he attacks the ball, and as he refines his skills, he is only going to get better. Clemson has been developing top wideouts in recent years and Jeff Scott has another to coach up here. He has deceptive speed down the field, he has a pretty good athlete, and he should see the field early. Top Stories
