Brief John Thompson Update

<p>I ran into Detroit Crockett linebacker <b>John Thompson</b> at the Holiday Classic this weekend. I took the opportunity to ask him a few questions about where things stood and he offered some very good news for Michigan fans. </p>

After visiting John Thompson (2003 U-M Camper, 6-1 1/2, 210 lbs, 4.5 in the 40) this spring (for story, click here) and attending one of his games this fall (for story, click here), it’s no wonder that his recruitment has picked up steam. The young man is a good student and a fierce tackler on the field. He and fellow Detroiter are two of only a few remaining serious targets within the state of Michigan for the class of 2004.

When you take your Michigan visit?

I visit Michigan on January 9th.

What visits have you taken already?

Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Have any schools been able to move past Michigan?

No, definitely not. Michigan is my leader.

Is it possible that you’ll commit on your Michigan visit?

It’s possible, but I want to take my other visits.

GBW will catch up with John again very soon.
