Two Official Visits Set For Thompson
Thompson informed JCFootball.com that he has set up two official visits for later this month.
"I will officially visit Southern Miss on July 25th and 26th and I will officially visit Indiana on July 27th and 28th," Thompson told JCFootball.com.
In addition to his offers from those two schools, Thompson also sports offers from Akron, Arkansas State, Eastern Kentucky, Iowa State, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Toledo and Western Kentucky and he's been getting plenty of interest from the likes of Maryland, Michigan State, Rutgers, Miami and Mississippi among others.
As a freshman last fall, Thompson used his outstanding quickness, size and physical style to post 81 tackles, three tackles-for-loss, two interceptions and four pass breakups.
"I feel like I'm an extremely physical safety that likes to get to the ball no matter where it is on the field," Thompson told JCFootball.com in the spring. "Even though I'm good in coverage, I think I can be even better and that's what I am working on this offsason.
"I feel to be an effective playing making safety at the next level you have to be able to cover receivers one-on-one."
Thompson enjoyed a solid prep career at Central Catholic High School in Toledo, Ohio, and he committed to Ohio State over several other schools, but he was unable to qualify for a scholarship to a four year school, so he chose to join the Reivers.
"I needed to go the JC route, so I chose to come here to Iowa Western and play," Thompson noted. "It's a good program and there are lots of good coaches and they get guys moved on to the next level."
Thompson is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
