"It blows my mind," said Thompson after revealing that he had his first official college scholarship offer and that it came from Oklahoma State. "They are definitely a school I think I could go play for and attend. The coach sent me a text message saying that the offer was sent and I was so excited to get that. I am going up there to Oklahoma State for the spring game next week (April 14)."
Thompson, who is also hearing from Texas A&M, TCU, Kansas, and Utah, made a huge splash with his performance at the Scout combine in Dallas last month. Thompson ran a 4.75 in the 40-yard dash, a 4.33 in the pro agility drill, and a 7.40 in the L-cone drill. He also had a 30.3-inch vertical jump and an 8'11" in the standing broad jump.
Thompson is 6-6, 229 pounds which is great size for a high school tight end prospect especially to play in a passing offense. Thompson also competes in basketball and track. He high jumps, triple jumps, and runs the 100 and 200 meters. He also reports a 305-pound bench press max and a 405-pound max in the squat.
Thompson plays both ways and caught 22 passes last season for 375 yards and a touchdown.
No doubt, Oklahoma State would love to get a verbal commitment before more schools jump in the boat with an offer.
