What's the Deal with Brandon Thompson?
The Clemson Tigers hoped to gain a verbal commitment from Brandon Thompson this week to complete perhaps the best defensive line class in the nation.
That no longer appears to be the case- at least for now.
"I am not going to make it this week," he said. "I am not sure when I will be ready," Thompson told CUTigers.com Tuesday evening.
Why has the commitment timing been delayed?
"I just thought I would be able to see all of the schools that I need to see, but I haven't," replied Thompson. "That's all."
Which schools does Thompson want to see before making his decision?
"I want to see LSU and Georgia Tech," replied Thompson.
The first visit may be to LSU in early September.
"I am not going anywhere this weekend. I may go to see LSU the following weekend. I am not sure about any other visits yet," said the star defender.
When asked about which teams are still under consideration, Thompson responded, "Clemson, Georgia Tech, LSU and probably Florida State."
The Georgia standout had an outstanding performance Friday night.
"The game went good. We won 27-0. I had one sack and nine tackles. I only played about three quarters," said Thompson.
