Michael Thompson Update

It's getting down to decision time for former Duke center Michael Thompson. In the past few days, he's taken a pair of official visits.

Michael Thompson, a 6-10, 250 pound center and former Duke player, has taken four official visits since announcing a transfer from the school last month.

Thompson began the visitation process with a stop at Notre Dame and then a post Christmas visit to Texas. However, he didn't decide after those trips and subsequently took two more trips.

Last week, for their game against Missouri, Thompson visited Iowa State. His familiarity with Iowa State comes from assistant Fred Quartlebaum who recruited Thompson out of high school when the coach was at UNC.

Thompson said the official visit to Iowa State went well but he continues to look around. On Saturday, he made an official visit to hometown Northwestern.

"I'm going to make a decision by the end of the weekend or by Monday or Tuesday," Thompson said Saturday morning.
