    Official College Hoops Thread: NEW Pitino .gif-c4a9ijqwqaexkxn-jpg

    Davenport FL — 2018 Armwood WR Warren Thompson is one of the top wide receivers in the nation. Thompson has offers from nearly every school in the country, but there’s four schools that are really standing out.

    “My top four is Miami, Florida St, Florida and North Carolina — In no order,” he said.

    While Thompson has relationships with Jimbo Fisher, Larry Fedora, and others, he says there’s one coach that he has the strongest relationship with.

    “I love the the Hurricanes,” said Thompson. “I sat down with Mark Richt and he told me how he was going to use me in their offense. I really love how Mark Richt coaches and what type of guy he is.

    Thompson is visiting Miami this week, but there’s a special someone that’s making her first trip to Coral Gables this weekend — His Mom,”

    “I think she’s going to love it, just the atmosphere and the beauty of the campus.”

    Here’s how Thompson feels about the other programs in his top four.

    North Carolina: “I don’t really care about leaving the state, and I really like how North Carolina is recruiting me and the way they run their offense.”

    Florida St. “It’s home.”

    Florida: “I’m so comfortable with them,” said Thompson “When I go up to Gainesville, I’m at home."

      feel like this kid is gonna make all 3 big 3 schools think hes coming and draw this out to NSD

      Hope I'm wrong though
      Doubt we'll have room for him by that point. And given how FSU recruits, I wouldn't be surprised if he goes to UF by default.

      Sorry but this is trash
      How so?
      Dude said 10 places were home. Just not an interview IMO that has any value when the kid keeps saying that every place is home. Kudos for the effort by Erick, sometimes interviews just fall flat.
      Isn't Erick still in high school?

      It amazes me and its pretty sad that we have grown men criticizing a high schooler for, I guess, not doing a perfect interview. You're complete trash jar4989.

      Thanks for the interview Erick. It's good to see Thompson is high on Miami, hopefully this weekend seals the deal

      Criticism is fine when it's constructive, but your comment fell well short of that. Telling anyone their work is "trash" is crass enough, but doing so without providing some specific examples to support your opinion of their work is unpersuasive, unproductive, and immature.

      I appreciate you coming back into the fray in a (belated) effort to support your opinion -- a more cowardly person might not have done that -- but I disagree with your assessment. Although Thompson (like a lot of high school kids) appears to have shown some indecision and poor word choice in his interview answers, I learned some things I didn't know before reading this post: (1) Thompson has a top 4 of UM, FSU, UF, and UNC; (2) Thompson's mother (whose support is, by several accounts, critical to landing him) will be attending; (3) staying close to home is not that important to him; and (4) Richt is building a solid relationship with Thompson. Personally, I come to this site for information, and Erick contributed to that. On that basis alone, the article was a success.

      Gotta think he is a +1 where if he wants in on NSD any school is going to make room

      They can't all go to UF... especially now that Callahan's son isn't coaching there.

      What is the kid supposed to say? They get asked these questions and they don't know what to say so they develop rote responses, just like coaches spout typical coachspeak BS. No it doesn't really tell you alot, but there's nothing nefarious about it.

      My goodness there are some studio police on this board with all kinds of feelings. Erick is awesome and does great work - you don't have to qualify that by stating he's in high school. The point is the kid was saying that 5 different places were "home" which is kind of ridiculous, not even considering the fact the places he's calling home are arch rivals of each other. Kid is supremely talented and hope he comes to the U, but he wasn't giving anything in that interview. Unlike Marshawn, he wasn't going to get fined for not doing an interview. Either engage in the interview with Erick or just decline. Some of us actually have jobs and don't F5 this board all day long, sorry for the belated response.

      It just doesn't mean we have to celebrate the rote responses. For the most part, coaches are contractually obligated to do pressers etc - which is why you see the BS coachspeak. Speaking of nefarious, I had no intent of ill-will towards Erick and was looking forward to checking out his latest article. Just disappointed with the rote answers that seem to negate the entire point of the questions.

      Sorry but I know some of you guys are big on him but I need to see him take a major leap this year to be excited about him as a football player. I do like his measurables and think he has the athletic ability, i just think he needs to figure out how to play real football when the pads come on
      1000% agree. I keep saying Thompson isn't the player everyone thinks he is. I did see someone in the Orlando Opening thread suggest he could be used as an H/TE. Now that's something I could get behind.
