"I was pretty confident in my shot last night," said Thompson. He admitted that his favorite part of the game is shooting, something he likes about Gonzaga and some of the others schools that have given him offers.

Thompson, a Sothern California native, admits that his dream school is close to home.

"I have a strong interest in UCLA," said Thompson. "I've always wanted to go there."

Thompson says he is also looking at USC. hHe will attend the Trojans' camp this summer.
