Lancaster (Calif.) Paraclete athlete Darian Thompson has one verbal offer and more interested...

Lancaster (Calif.) Paraclete athlete Darian Thompson is what his head coach Norm Dahlia calls a "Coach's Dream".

"He's had to be a man because of home since he was a kid and he comes out and works hard each day," said Dahlia. "He's a dream to coach."

Thompson is a versatile athlete for one of the better programs in the Antelope Valley, playing on both sides of the ball, and with one school having verbally offered, some more schools are keeping a watch on him.

"We talked to Boise State and they have verbally offered Darian and Fresno State likes him an awful lot too," said Dahlia.

Oregon State and assistant coach Joe Seumalo was in the house on Friday night when Thompson scored a pair of touchdowns and helped Paraclete to a win over Palmdale Knight.

"As more and more schools get his film, I think more schools will offer," said Dahlia. "We're just trying to get his name out there some more. We have two really good prospects this year with Lavonte Barnett and Darian."

Barnett has several offers, but the two could end up playing together in college.

Thompson had touchdown receptions from 10 yards and four yards on Friday, and two more receptions and also made a crushing hit on a block after a teammate intercepted a pass, furthering that the secondary is his likely future.

Brandon is in his sixth year with, currently as the West Regional Manager. Prior to joining Scout, he spent three years as an o-line and tight ends coach in the high school ranks.
