Thompson, the Washington Post's defensive player of the year this past year, visited Virginia Tech this past weekend and had a great time in Blacksburg. "It was nice, all went well," Thompson said of his visit. "I had a good time down there."
Though Thompson notes that having high school teammate Antonio North heading to Blacksburg as well was not a huge factor in his decision, he is happy to have a friend going to Tech this weekend. The Tech coaches are elated to have the pair signing on Wednesday as well and was ecstatic when Thompson called Monday to confirm his commitment. "When I called, they said they were very excited to have me," Thompson said. "They said they can't wait to get me in there."
As a senior, the 6'3, 315-pound defensive tackle record 60 tackles including 47 for a loss. Thompson was named All-State along with being honored as the Washington Post's defensive player of the year.
