Scout.com is profiling each member from the Midlands Region heading to The Opening next week at Nike…
The Opening: Previewing Deionte Thompson
7v7 Team: Landsharks
HT: 6'1 | WT: 174
West Orange-Stark (Texas)
Recruiting: Thompson did not wait long at all to make a decision to play for Alabama in college. He was the first commit in the No. rated class.
Scouting Report: A long and rangy defensive back prospect, who is good in coverage and is not afraid to come up and make a hit. He is tall, long, and has pretty good speed for his size. Covers ground quickly and plays the ball very well in the air. He has knack for making plays on the ball and knocking it away or getting the interception. Will add bulk to his frame and should grow in to the perfect safety candidate, framewise, by the time he gets to college.
At Stake: Scout has Thompson rated as a Top Five Midlands prospect. He did not do all of the testing, so he did not win MVP honors at the Houston NFTC, but many considered him as the top recruit in attendance regardless of position. Biggest question could be if he fits in better at safety or corner on the next level.
