Who Better to Play For?

ATHENS – Georgia remains in first place for the top player in the Peach State.

Westover DL Trenton Thompson told Scout national recruiting analyst Chad Simmons that the Bulldogs are still on top after his visit to both Auburn and Georgia this weekend.

“Georgia is No. 1, then Auburn is No. 2 for me. I still like Alabama, Florida State, and USC, too,” he said on Sunday.

Thompson has maintained that the Bulldogs have led for him for nearly the entire length of his recruiting processes. The five-star defensive lineman has visited a slew of schools and is being pursued by nearly every program in the country.

And yet Georgia has kept the lead for Thompson – even through a defensive coaching staff change in January. In fact, that change could be one of the reasons Thompson ends up in Athens one day.

“Coach Rocker won the Lombardi and Outland trophy,” Thompson said. “Who better to play for?”

One insider said the relationship between Rocker and Thompson is significant.

“Rocker is his guy,” that source said.

Westover starts its football season against Lee County on August 23rd at 1PM. The game will be televised by ESPN.
