Another Offer At Wide-Out

This WR out of Ennis High School has great size and good speed to go along with it. At 6'5 200 lbs, he is building interest, and Texas State extended an offer Monday.

Standing tall, while running a 4.6 40 and possessing a 33 inch vertical, all make him a dangerous weapon in the red zone and a tough task for any corner to cover all alone. Donta Thompson already has offers from UTSA and the University of Central Oklahoma, but the latest comes from the Bobcats who attended his spring practice on Monday afternoon and apparently liked what they saw.

"Coach Tatum, came up and talked to me after practice, and said he really like what he saw and that they where ready to give me the offer. I already know a lot about them and know that they are a program that is on the rise. I am really interested in the possibility of becoming a Bobcat, In my opinion they are for sure my best option so far," said Thompson about receiving his latest offer.

In Thompson's Junior year at Ennis, he only recorded 19 receptions, however he was able to make the most of them racking up 435 yards, for an average of 22.8 YPC and reaching the end zone six times on his way to being named Second Team All-District. While there is clearly room for improvement, there is obvious potential in this wide out who is still growing and has good athleticism.

"I am a big receiver who likes to play physical, and has the ability to get off the ball and also the ability to go up and catch it over defenders," said Thompson on what sets him apart from other wide outs in his class.

Currently Thompson has only visited OU and Texas, and still has interest from several other big schools like Texas Tech, and Baylor. Coaches and programs better either get on or off the bandwagon soon, because Donta would like to have his mind made up by the time his Senior year comes around.

"I want to be a part of a thriving program, that has a well rounded system, and that overall just feels like home. I plan on making more visits this summer, to better evaluate all my options, and try and make the best decision for my future." said Thompson.
