Durham (NC) Hillside four-star wideout Trevion Thompson was in Raleigh this weekend for his official visit. What did he think of the trip?

"It went really well," he said. "I had a great time with them. There wasn't one part that really stood out... I'd say there were a lot of highlights. I like how organized it was there."

Thompson was hosted on his visit by Wolfpack quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

"We had a good time," said Thompson. "Jacoby was a laid back guy. He was real chill."

Joining Thompson in Raleigh was a host of committed prospects including Kalen McCain, a high school teammate of Thompson. McCain has been talking up the Wolfpack.

"There were a lot of State commitments there," said Thompson. "They were talking up State... Kalen too. He hasn't been in my ear a lot, but he's letting me know what's going on there."

Thompson said he spoke with Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren and a couple of other members of the staff prior to leaving campus.

"My relationship with coach Kitchings is very good," he stated. "He's been on me since the day they've offered me. It's real good. I talk to coach Jackson a lot too, and coach Doeren, he's real laid-back about the situation.

"They told me they believe in the system. Coach Doeren was comparing it to other coaches that have turned programs around. He believes that he's going to lead them to be one of the top teams int he country."

"Overall, the discussions went great," he added. "It wasn't my first time meeting them and we've talked a lot before, but the questions that I asked they answered for me."

Thompson has now taken official visits to NC State and Ohio State. He added that he is still considering six schools: NC State, Clemson, Ohio State, West Virginia, Florida State, and North Carolina.

He maintains that there is no leader, and he'll be taking more official visits in January.

"I'm still open," said Thompson. "My plan before the football season was to make a decision by the middle of my season, but I didn't get to take all of my official visits.

"Right now I don't have a definitive date for when I want to announce my decision."
