This is good news for the Longhorns if it holds true.

Scout.com Evaluation: Josh Thompson

Josh Thompson is the type of defensive back who could potentially play cornerback or safety at the high-major level. Good size with the space to add more bulk once he's in college. Well-built prospect with good combination of size and athleticism. Laser-timed at 4.48 in the 40, as well as a 4.22 shuttle. He's shown excellent straight-line speed as well as good lateral quickness and hip turn. Physical player who can fight through receivers' perimeter blocks vs. the run. Type of player who could become a dangerous blitzer if used that way. Always around the ball and possesses the ability to chase down receivers in coverage if beaten off the line. Thompson can provide the big hit, but occasionally sacrifices tackling technique to do so. He's been recruited as a cornerback and a safety and could fit either position as needed, as well as the nickel. - Gabe Brooks
