2018 Scout 100 Wide Receiver Picks Up FSU Offer

Could 2018 be the year that a player from Armwood finally ends up at Florida State?

Seffner (Fla.) Armwood 2018 4-star wide receiver Warren Thompson picked up an offer from Florida State after his camp performance. The Seminoles join Miami and Florida as instate schools to offer Thompson in addition to the 15 other offers he already holds.

Thompson had a good day despite dealing with an ankle injury.

"I did pretty good," Thompson said. "I was dealing with a bit of an injury. I tweaked my ankle at Sling and Shoot the other day, but other than that it went good. Getting out of my breaks good."

He has built up a relationship with the Seminoles wide receiver coach Lawrence Dawsey.

"It was good," Thompson said. "Coach Dawsey, I love him. Great person. Great personality. I'm looking to try and know him more."

Prior to picking up the offer, Warren stated that he would move Florida State into his Top-5 if an offer came his way.

"I love Florida State," Thompson said. "If they offer me they will be in our top five."

One of the reasons that the Florida State offer was so important to him is that he grew up a fan.

"I grew up a Noles fan," Thompson said. "So I've been a Noles fan all my life. Other schools have been offering me, and I've been getting to know other schools. I've been seeing other receivers that came from other schools. I've come to like other schools and receivers."

Now that he has the offer he wants to see if it will be a good fit for him.

"Just a childhood dream that would be fulfilled," Thompson said. "Just looking to find if it's a great fit for me."

Thompson plans to release a Top-10 soon, but mentioned four teams that will be joining the Seminoles.

"Miami, Florida, Georgia, Penn State," Thompson said. "After this week I'm releasing a Top-10."

Thompson is from Armwood, which has a stigma that players from the school don't go to Florida State. Thompson has heard about it, but has no idea why.

"I don't know what it's about," Thompson said. "I've heard it before. I really don't know what's the issue. I guess that's just before my time."

His response for whether that will affect him was short and sweet.

"Not at all," Thompson said.
