Thompson has Wake Forest (12/12), Marshall (1/16), and Auburn (1/23) still on his short list. However, a decision could be made in the next 14 days.
"Hopefully I'll decide sooner rather than later. I want to at least know where I'm going right after the Marshall visit, because I've already been to Auburn."
