6-2, 294 pound defensive tackle prospect Brandon Thompson was upset that he couldn't be in Death Valley Saturday night.

"It was a great game. I was upset because I couldn't be there. I really wanted to come to that one," said Thompson.

"I talked with coach Napier the day before the game. He was just telling me he wanted me to come up for the game. I was looking for a ride. He wanted to know if I was coming."

The Thomasville, Ga. native will take his final official visit to Clemson after the first of the year.

"It will be in January. I think I will go up for the football banquet weekend," said Thompson. "I will probably make my decision at that time."

Could a decision come before his final official visit to Clemson?

"Maybe so, I am not sure yet," replied Thompson.

When asked to list his leaders in order, Thompson responded, "Clemson, LSU and Georgia Tech in that order."

Thompson said he has been talking frequently with A.J. Harmon.

"We talk every Friday after our games. We talk about how we performed. We talk about who we play next. We play some of the same teams. The team we played last week they had already played," said Thompson.

Will Harmon's final destination have any impact on where Thompson signs?

"No sir, not really," replied the top defender.

A 5-star defensive lineman also keeps in touch with Daquan Bowers, Clemson's highest rated verbal commitment for the 2008 recruiting class. "Daquan and I keep in touch. We text each other every now and then," said Thompson.

The season continues for Thompson as they advance in the playoffs.

"We are still in the playoffs. We won 24-0 this week. Next week we play Savannah Christian," said Thompson.

Thompson is currently rated as the No. 4 defensive tackle prospect in the country according to Scout.com.
