MORE BREAKING: Wulff lands Colorado 'backer
"Washington State," said Thompson, who visited Pullman this past weekend. "It was a friendly town and I like the way they coach."
A physical, explosive fullback with speed, Thompson pounded out 1,368 ground yards with 18 touchdowns this season in Eaglecrest's modified wing-offense.
But he'll come to Washington State as a tackle-with-your-face linebacker.
"They liked my hard work and, well, just the way I hit people," said Thompson, who did most of his hitting on offense. As one of the top offensive 5A yardage makers in Colorado, he played sparingly on D his senior year.
Thompson drew interest from Cal, K-State and others this recruiting season and was named first team all-league at running back his senior campaign.
In one game this season, he rushed for 399 yards and six touchdowns.
