Although he won't start focusing on his college choice until Sumter's season comes to an end, Thompson thinks highly of Clemson. "I like the coaching staff and the graduation rate, and I think they will be a very good team next season," Thompson said. "I could definitely see myself at Clemson." Thompson will visit South Carolina this weekend for the Gamecocks game against Clemson. Clemson assistant Dabo Swinney is recruiting Thompson for the Tigers.
