“I wish him the best of luck in the future,” White said. “He is a great talent and hope for nothing but the best for him.”
Ben Lippen was the second stop for Thompson, who transferred from Dutch Fork after his freshman year. He had to sit out his sophomore season at Ben Lippen because of academics but played a big role this year in helping the Falcons to the SCISA 3A championship.
Thompson scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime to beat Porter-Gaud in the title game. He had 1,819 yards total offense, 24 TDs last year and had three interceptions on defense.
Thompson is ranked No. 11 by 247Sports and 13th by rivals for the Class of 2018. He committed to Virginia Tech, which recruited him as a receiver, but some schools are recruiting him as a defensive back.
South Carolina is interested in him and has offered. He also has offers from South Carolina, Washington State, Colorado, Georgia State, Coastal Carolina and N.C. State.
