The Oregon Ducks did not push Everette Thompson, from Kennedy High School in Burien, Wash., into making a decision on where he will spend the next four or five years of his life. In fact, the Ducks told Thompson there is no rush.
"We enjoyed you coming out," related Thompson as to what the Oregon coaches said. "There's no rush in committing at all."
Everette really enjoyed his trip to Eugene, and thought the training room was "amazing." While this was his official visit, he's been to the Eugene campus on a couple of unofficial visits in the past.
What was the best part of his visit? Well, there was that national showdown between the No. 5 Ducks and the No. 8 Trojans of USC in which Oregon prevailed 24-17.
"I just really enjoyed the game," confided Thompson. "The best part of my visit was the game."
Thompson's team is 7-3 for the season and is heading into the first round of the state playoffs. He's going to be plenty busy over the next couple of months. He plans to visit Oregon State in November and the University of Washington in December.
Right now he has a core GPA of 2.3 and is scheduled to retake the ACT in December.
