Thompson took an official visit to Columbus this weekend. He was scheduled to visit Indiana next weekend and multiple reports said he wouldn't commit before making both visits. But that obviously didn't happen.
Ohio State was always the heavy favorite to land Thompson, a 6-foot-11 center, so it's not a huge surprise he'll be a Buckeye. But nevertheless, that's another capable target off the board for Tom Crean and Co. in next year's class.
There are still a number of transfers popping up around the country, so Indiana's search is far from over.
Thompson is an Indianapolis native who began his high school career at Ben Davis.
