James Thompson, 6-5, 310, 5.0, Sumter
Here's another OL who is very close to being a five-star player. I must admit before I got to Sumter I did not know a whole lot about James, but after viewing him in person and seeing his film, he's got to rank as one of the top OL prospects in the ACC. Physically, he looks like he can play in the NFL already. He's a very imposing, strong and tough OLT who could wind up playing OG in college.
On Film-I was impressed with James' run blocking ability, he destroys defenders with his quick feet and superior strength. He also has a great attitude, he never lets up and shows excellent quickness off the ball.
Stats-He graded out at 87% in his blocking assignments last year and recorded 25 pancake blocks. He improves from game to game and by the end of this coming season, he should be a bonafide All-American. Benches 405.
Grades-His GPA is over a 2.5 and he scored a 920 on the SAT.
Other Sports-He throws both the shot put and the discus in track.
Favorite Schools-GA and FL are his dream schools. He's also looking hard at SC, VA and NC.
