5-Star WR Owns Offers from All Over

One of the top receivers in the nation has the offer list to match. CUTigers.com caught up with this 5-star speedster to get the latest on his recruitment.

Deonte Thompson, a 5-11, 185-pound wide receiver prospect out of Glade Central High School (Fla.) has lost count of his number of scholarship offers in recent weeks.

"I don't even know how many offers I have now. I lost count," Thompson told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "It's been that many."

So far, schools such as Florida, Florida State, Miami, Notre Dame, LSU, Southern California and Clemson have moved in with offers, among others.

When asked if he has any favorites out of that group, Thompson responded, "No, I don't have any favorites right now. I haven't really thought about it all too much yet. It will be sometime next fall probably before I make a decision."

The Florida standout may visit the Irish in the next few weeks. "I am supposed to go to Notre Dame on April 22 for the spring game. They have invited me. I'm not sure yet if I will make it.

"I have already taken unofficial visits to Auburn, Alabama, Florida and Miami. I will probably go to the Nike camp at Miami on April 9."

What will be the most important factors when Thompson selects a college? "I will be looking for good academics. I want to play for a winning program," responded Thompson. "That is about it. I also want to play in a good environment."

Thompson will travel to South Carolina later this year when his team faces off with Byrnes High and current Clemson commitment Willy Korn in a game that will be televised by ESPN.
