Local standout wide receiver Chris Thompson is from Gainesville (FL) Gainesville high school and checks in at 6'0 and 160-pounds with blistering 4.37 speed. Thompson made an unofficial visit to the University of Florida to watch his future teammates in action and talked about it with FightinGators.com.
"I went around 6am with Keith Kelsey and they were going through plays and drills and stuff like that. I was watching the wide receiver's to see what they are doing and it was exciting to see practice and how they run it knowing I will go through the same thing. I picked up a lot of little things I can use like getting out of my breaks and getting off the ball so it went pretty good. I talked to coach Muschamp after practice and he was telling me to stay focused and get ready for the season."
Gainesville High School opens practice Monday August 6th. They will hold the first three days of practice in shorts and helmets then go full pads for the following three days.
