2015 Intro: Arthur Thompkins
Arthur Thompkins is willing to do a little bit of everything to make sure his Pittsburgh (Pa.) Woodland Hills side has success. A glance at the Wolverines' play-off box score proves it. The 5-foot-10, 177 pound class of 2015 slot receiver shifted to running back for an opening round conference match-up, scoring four down touchdowns in the process to lead his side to an easy 35-14 victory. It was a performance that may have drawn his name notice, but certainly not his first offer, as Toledo took care of that last summer. Now, he's looking for more with the offseason kicking off. "My strengths are my speed, quickness, and how smart I am," Thompkins said. "I know the game, and a lot of people don't know some of the things I do like coverages and what the defensive back is going to do. I think I have an advantage with that because I played safety. "My strength and quickness are definitely my biggest strengths, though." Toledo offered following a camp last summer, and the program immediately has an advantage thanks to familiarity. Six former Pittsburg area standouts dot the Rockets' roster, while a seventh, Woodland Hills safety Trevon Mathis, plans to sign with the program on National Signing Day. "I went down there for a camp last summer, and [Toledo head coach Mark] Campbell said he liked me. They offered me after that," Thompkins said. "I liked that they were really down to earth, and that they showed a lot of interest in me. I felt like I was one of the top recruits for them, and felt an immediate connection. "That's how I would want the coaches to be wherever I go, and with one of my best friends committing there, I'll always have a connection with Toledo whether I end up there or not." The junior currently has no visits planned.
