FYI................

Quote:
"I narrowed my school list down to five," Thompson said. "Ohio State, Florida, Oregon State, Illinois and Kentucky. Unless something happens I think it's going to be one of those five. It's been a fun experience getting to know the coaches and the programs."

Thompson down to five schools

RIVERSIDE, Ill. -- Sam Thompson has a plan.

The rising senior forward from Chicago's Whitney Young is well aware that the recruiting process, on a good day, is organized chaos. Thompson, the nation's No. 55-rated prospect, is doing the best he can to maintain some form of order.

"I have a top five right now," Thompson said at this past weekend's Riverside-Brookfield Shootout. "I don't know if it's completely final but that's the looks of things. Ohio State, Oregon State, Florida, Georgetown and Kansas, and that's in no particular order. & As of right now, I'm going to take all five of my visits to those schools and hopefully decide before [the early signing period in November.]"

Although he doesn't have an Illinois school on his list, many of Thompson's potential college destinations have had much recruiting success in the area.

"That's definitely something that's a plus, having a good Chicago connection, but I wasn't looking for a Chicago connection when I was making my school list," he said. "I was more looking for the best fit for me personally."

As far as the criteria that might impact Thompson's decision, he is very interested in what systems the teams run and how he fits.

"Two of the schools on [the list] run a Princeton offense [Georgetown and Oregon State]," Thompson said. "Then you have Ohio State, more of a slow down team. Florida really likes to get it out there and run along with Kansas. So I have a few different styles of play on there. & I'm going to look more deeply into that this summer."
