Thompson, a three-star prospect, added an offer from Ohio State on Tuesday, his ninth offer. The player's father, Deon Thompson, discussed the Buckeye offer.
"Obviously, Ohio State is a great offer," the elder Thompson stated. "Jayme is excited to have that offer, but at this time he is still committed to West Virginia. Ohio State is a great institution, and Urban Meyer is a great coach, but Jayme is still committed to West Virginia."
Thompson is currently ranked as the number-29 player in Ohio for the class of 2013, and is also the number-31 safety prospect in America.
