The one-time Georgia fan immediately took to the Alabama program during his recruitment. Thompson said he has plenty to offer the Crimson Tide.
“Just a freak of nature,” he said. “I can play anywhere on the field and be dominant at any position.”
Here are his highlights from Hudl:
Thompson started for Foley as a freshman and then had a breakout sophomore season.
Thompson last season caught 53 passes for 661 yards and 5 TDs for the Lions and finished with 814 all-purpose yards. He also had a pair of interceptions.
“Last year, he really started to show the skills we were thinking he had,” Foley head coach Deric Scott said, per AL.com. “He developed this past year and has put a lot of work in during the offseason. He was able to go to some camps this summer and show what he could do. He also had a tremendous track and field season, so that no doubt helped.”
