"They moved me over to offense in the middle of the season to help shore up the offensive line. I spent a lot of time on the film room with my coaches trying to figure out how to play the position," said Thompson.
Thompson thinks he might play offense and defense next season as a senior. "I'll play wherever they need me," added Thompson.
"I talk to Coach Giles and Coach MacWhorter from Texas. It is pretty exciting for them to show me interest. I grew up watching them, and my mom and dad are both Longhorn fans. I like Texas a lot. They have a pretty stout defense," added Thompson.
Thompson continued, "Texas is a tough school to get accepted, and academics are important to me."
Thompson camped last summer at Oklahoma State, Rice, and Texas A&M. The recruiting process is just getting started in earnest for Tyrus, and he is keeping an open mind.
"I am pretty open to all schools right now. I have been invited to the Texas-Texas A&M game, but I can't make it as I have some family stuff to care of, but I will be watching."
