He would like to be recruited as an athlete and thinks he will probably end up on defense.
"I am really good at covering," he says. I also have great agility and vision."
Grant Head Coach Mike Albergheni says of Thompson: "He was all-state as a sophomore and junior. Last year nobody would kick the ball to him. They would rather give up field position than put the ball in his hands. He is terrific at every position, but I really think he will play corner in college. He is a great shutdown corner."
Of the Wildcats he says, "They have a good program there now and they are really recruiting me hard."
Of UCLA he says, "I really like their coach and program. I have done a lot of research on them and I think I could get a good education there. I have family in L.A., too."
Of USC he says, "I like them for a lot of the same reasons I like UCLA. I like their academics and program."
Thompson carries a 3.1 core GPA and is taking the SAT on May 1st. He would like to major in Business.
