Thompson Enjoys A&M Junior Day

Missouri City Elkins DB Corey Thompson

Scout.com has the update on Houston area junior defensive back Corey Thompson. Recently, he attended a junior day at Texas A&M and said that it was a really enjoyable experience. Thompson got to meet many coaches, including coach Mike Sherman. How did the conversation go? Check it out in the Scout.com feature.

While there were a number of players who traveled to College Station, TX, many came away good news. But perhaps not great news.

But Missouri City (TX) Elkins defensive back Corey Thompson did.

"It was really interesting getting to talk with coach Mike Sherman. I was glad I got the chance to meet him," Thompson said of his junior day trip to Texas A&M. "We talked about academics and me getting into college. Then, he offered me verbally. It came straight from him right there in his office with me and my dad sitting there."

So, how does that make the 6-foot-2, 205-pound defender feel?

"I'm excited. This is my first offer," Thompson said.

Though Thompson had ventured to College Station many times before, none tops this junior day visit when the offer came down. And while he is still on high from the offer, Thompson is already getting ready for the next visit that he is set to attend.

"I'm probably going to go to Houston for the junior day next week. I was invited to LSU junior day too, but I don't know if I will make it," Thompson said.

Thompson said that he will be recruited as a defensive back, but said that the coaching staff is open to him coming in as an athlete and see where he fits in best.

"They (A&M coaches, said he spoke a lot with assistant coach Nick Toth) that I am coming in as a defensive back, but when I get here I could do whatever," Thompson said. "If I can play wide receiver, I could do it."
