SC Offensive Lineman Lays It On The Table

He is one of the "Fab Four" offensive linemen in the state this season, a season that sees South Carolina as loaded with big uglies as at any time in the history of the state. And now this Gamecock clears-up the rumors for members of ...

The hottest rumor circulating about surrounds Sumter (SC) offensive lineman James Thompson and a possible commitment to South Carolina. This is a rumor Thompson is aware of, and knows of its source.

"I was just casually asking about it last night to a coach, and I think that started it all," says the 6-foot-5, 310 pounder. "I am probably going to wait a while and decide after the season is over."

While the rumor is not completely true, it is also not completely off-base.

"They are my leader, and right now I plan to go to South Carolina, but I still want to wait until after the season to really decide. It does not look too good for the other schools, but I want to take official visits to the other schools to check on them and you never know what will happen.

The teams on Thompson's short list of visitation include North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia. James would like to visit during the season, but he also would like to focus on the upcoming season.

"We have the athletes to go all the way to the state (championship), and we have the coaches to win it all."
