"I really liked the thought of playing for Glendale because it was a good program here," Thompson told JCFootball.com recently. "I was disappointed that I couldn't get into Washington State, but I figured if I came here and had a good two years, I'd get another shot."
Last season, as a freshman, Thompson was moved up closer to the line and was in the two-deeps as a linebacker, but he was moved back to the secondary due to injuries.
"I was a running back in high school, but I feel real comfortable now at corner and I feel like that's where I'm probably going to be able to make an impression," Thompson said. "I can play safety or corner and do just fine and I feel like I'm really starting to come on at the position."
So far this season, Thompson is having a very good season outside for the Gauchos, posting 14 tackles, two interceptions and four passes defensed while helping to lead them to a 3-0 record.
Washington State has verbally offered Thompson and Arizona and Arizona State have made it known they like what he brings to the table, but he said he's still waiting for interest to pick up among all the schools he's interested in.
"I'm open to anyone that wants to recruit me right now," Thompson said. "I still think about Washington State and possibly still going there, but I want to see who else might be interested and really see where I might fit in best."
Thompson will finish up his AA in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
