Thompson Settled on School, To Announce Soon

2015 Detroit (Mich.) King four-star outside linebacker Tyriq Thompson made his way to Ann Arbor for Michigan’s barbecue Sunday. Thompson discusses the visit with his family, when he’s ready to make a decision and where the Wolverines fit into that.

Sunday was a big day for 2015 Detroit (Mich.) King four-star outside linebacker Tyriq Thompson and Michigan.

Make the short trip to Ann Arbor with his family in order to take part in the Wolverines’ barbecue; Thompson is pleased with the experience as a whole.

“It went well,” Thompson said. “Me and my family had a good time. The race was fun.”

The race Thompson refers to is a scavenger hunt of sorts, moving around Michigan’s campus and snapping pictures in front of several different buildings.

Split up into teams with various other recruits in attendance, Thompson said he heard quite a bit from Michigan’s commitments, eager to add him to the fold.

“They were doing their job,” Thompson said laughing.

The question following the visit is did his peers and future Wolverines have enough of an impact to move Michigan up?

“(Michigan is in the) same position as before I guess,” Thompson said.

“I’ve been thinking about everything (with my recruitment) these past couple days,” Thompson added.

Asked directly if he feels ready to make a decision and knows where he wants to go to school, Thompson answered swiftly.

“Yes,” he said.

Michigan State is long believed to be the main competition in the race to secure a commitment from Thompson.

The 6-foot-1, 220-pound wouldn’t divulge too much detail about his impending decision, but he knows there won’t be a press conference or the popular picking of a hat on a table.

“I don’t know when,” Thompson said. “But it’ll be simple. I don’t like the whole announcement thing.”
