OL James Thompson
6-5, 310, 4.95
Sumter High School
Sumter, South Carolina
The 6-foot-5, 310-pound tackle took an official visit to South Carolina this past weekend. "It went well. I had a good time," said Thompson in an interview with CUTigers.com late Monday evening.
When asked how he would rate the visit on a scale of 10, Thompson responded, "I would probably give it about an 8."
In other news, it appears as though Thompson has dropped one of the ACC schools from his list. "I'm not going to visit Florida State. I just decided I would probably not be going there."
The prize recruit has moved his final official visit to accommodate his Sumter High football banquet. "I have moved my Clemson visit from next weekend to the weekend of January 30," added Thompson. "I have my football banquet next weekend."
Coach Swinney called Thompson on Monday to check in with the outstanding lineman. "We just talked about the visit and how things went mainly."
Speaking of visits, the Sumter native will have visits from Clemson and South Carolina on Wednesday.
"South Carolina is coming by the house on Wednesday. Clemson is coming by the school on Wednesday. Coach Swinney, Coach Bowden and Coach West are all coming to the school."
Thompson, like many big time recruits this year, will wait until the last minute to make his final decision. "I am still planning to announce on signing day."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding offensive lineman from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
