Football recruiting never stops. It's why you see players getting evaluated and receiving offers at an earlier and earlier rate as college coaches try to get the jump for a players loyalty and ultimately their commitment and signature on an LOI.
One such player I introduce you to now is St. Louis (MO) Parkway North 2018 DT/OT Michael Thompson 6'4" 266-pounds.
Thompson started at right tackle for his Vikings team as a freshman, and was a recent standout at the Elite Football Combine at Rams Park this spring, where he ran a 5.0 forty, and performed well in other tests and drills clearly standing out.
Tonight at an Illinois satellite camp in the St. Louis Metro area, Thompson received his first of what will be many offers from college programs.
