Thompson has a half-dozen offers with plenty more schools interested.
UCLA was the most recent offer for the four-star.
"Coach Meat (Demetrice) Martin came by the school in the spring and then he ended up offering me," said Thompson. "That's a big offer because UCLA is a big school. I definitely have some serious interest in them."
Thompson said he'd been talking with the Bruins but after Martin had seen him work out, that prompted the offer.
"Coach Meat had seen some film and then he came and watched me practice and he just made it happen there," said Thompson.
Cal, the hometown school, is the school Thompson said is on him the hardest.
"I'd say Cal is recruiting me the hardest," said Thompson. "What they did for me early, they did a lot, and they've been on me ever since day one," said Thompson. "I really like Cal, growing up I was watching them."
So naturally, the Ducks are high on his last.
"Oregon is actually one of my dream offers," said Thompson. "Coach (John) Neal, I talked with him and he wants me to come to camp."
Thompson said the early interest from the Pac-12 has surprised him.
"I thought it would start happening my junior year," said Thompson. "I thought everything went around then, so I was surprised and I didn't ever expect this much attention early."
In fact, when Thompson first started playing in high school, he thought offense would be his ticket.
"I was at receiver and going to camps as a freshman playing there," said Thompson. "Then I converted to DB and I picked that up pretty fast and it felt more natural."
With a lot of time until he has to make a decision, Thompson plans to go through the whole recruiting process.
"I've got a lot of time to weigh all my options out with myself and my family so I'll wait till my senior year, take the visits and open my mind a little bit," said Thompson.
