Name: Michael Thompson
Town: St. Louis, MO
School: Parkway North HS
Size: 6-foot-4, 310
Recruitment: Alabama, Ole Miss, LSU, Ohio State, Illinois, Iowa and Missouri
Scout.com Ranking: No. 2 DT / No. 34 overall rated player
Scout.com evaluation: The Rebels have made the state of Missouri as a part of their home recruiting territory. Newly hired DL and LB coaches Roach and Peveto are now responsible recruiting this state. Last week they went to see many of the players they have offered around the St. Louis area including Michael.
He goes both ways for Parkway North but the colleges project him at nose guard. He's extremely strong with long arms and has a motor that never stops. Honestly, he looks just as good at left tackle as defensive tackle because of these attributes. Nevertheless, Michael recently stated that Alabama, Ole Miss, Ohio State, Illinois, Iowa and Missouri were the schools he has visited. A decision will not be made until signing day.
