TE/DE Moe Thompson Update

We've got the latest on one of South Carolina's premier recruiting prospects this year, big Moe Thompson from Stratford High School. Moe is one of the top players in the state on both sides of the ball this year.

Moe Thompson (6'4,265,4.8) was in Chapel Hill this past weekend for the North Carolina-Duke game and reportedly enjoyed his visit.

Statford High School lost last weekend in the first round of the playoffs to Northwestern, finishing their season at 11-2, so big Moe is done playing football. His focus now returns to the basketball court, where he averaged 17 points per game from his power forward position last season.

From his tight end position, Moe is known to catch anything thrown within a 5-mile radius of his hands, as he made so many unbelievable catches this year for his team. He is big, tough, and has fantastic quickness for his size. His grades are also set, and he is projected as a full qualifier.

Moe's top two consists of North Carolina and South Carolina, with Clemson and Florida State not far behind. The Maryland Terrapins and Georgia Bulldogs are also in the equation.

Moe is expected to visit the Tigers officially sometime in January, although he has not set the date quite yet. He is currently ranked as the #15 TE prospect in the country by recruiting expert Max Emfinger.
