Justin Bridges-Thompson - Linebacker
TigerNet: (3.00)

Height: 6-1   Weight: 195   Hometown: Spartanburg, SC (Spartanburg HS)   Class: 2013

From NUC:

Assets: He stood out right off the bat during agility drills moving his feet and hips with the swiftness of a defensive back. Bridges-Thompson looked great dropping in coverage during individual drills and he possesses the ball skills to be a defensive difference maker. But it was not just his physical attributes that stood out but his vocal leadership and encouragement of others. His efforts did not go unnoticed as he walked away with the LB MVP.

Development: He is a bit thin right now so adding another 25 pounds of muscle mass will help him inflict damage on ball carriers. Bridges-Thompson may actually project better as a strong safety.

As a junior, he had 90 tackles, 3 pass break-ups and 3 quarterback pressures. He took an unofficial visit to the Clemson-Wofford game in 2011. He has taken a camp at South Carolina.
