Recruiting: Tigers Miss on Final Offensive Lineman Target

James Thompson had to follow his heart. After making visits to South
Carolina and Clemson, Thompson knew he would have to make a very
tough decision.

"I really like both schools," Thomspson said. "My visits went great,
both have great programs and graduation rates, and both told me that I
would have the chance to play as a freshman."

Realizing it wouldn't be possible to choose both, Thompson chose the
Gamecocks, a decision he said will not change.

"I chose South Carolina for two main reasons," Thompson said. "I felt
like I knew the coaches and players better, and the school is only 45
minutes away from home."

"My choice was nothing against Clemson. I just went with the school I
thought was best for me."
