"Those are three on the list right now," said College of the Siskiyous coach Eric Young.
Thompson, a versatile athlete, played multiple positions in junior college. As a wide receiver, Thompson caught 13 passes for 255 yards as a sophomore and returned five punts for 60 yards. On defense, Thompson made 26 tackles, intercepted four passes and broke up five passes.
"He's a fantastic kid and a really good athlete," said Young. "He played wide receiver and cornerback for us and also returned punts. However, I anticipate him playing cornerback at the next level. He's a good player."
While Cal and Tulsa have been involved with Thompson for a while, Louisville only recently became an option for the talented cornerback. Despite Louisville's late entry into his recruitment, Thompson is excited about his visit to U of L this weekend.
"His interest in Louisville is something that just recently happened," Young said. "He had a previous relationship with Coach Kragthorpe when he was recruiting him at Tulsa and when he moved to Louisville that opened the door with Louisville. He has a real good relationship with Coach Kragthorpe. He was pretty excited to get on that plane to go to Louisville this weekend."
Could that excitement translate into a commitment for Kragthorpe's Cardinals?
"He's scheduled to visit Tulsa next weekend, but it wouldn't shock me if he committed to Louisville during his visit," Young said. "But if I had to guess he'll probably come back from Louisville and mull things over a little bit (before making a decision)."
Thompson will sign a national letter of intent next month.
"He will finish here in May and he's on track to graduate," Young said.
