Miami showing Deonte Thompson the love


Recommended Posts

Canes showing Thompson plenty of love

 

By Jim Martz, CaneSport Magazine

 

Belle Glade, Fla., Glades Central High School WR Deonte Thompson is taking a mini-break from the intensity of recruiting.

 

Because of the summer's dead period, he's had a break from the incessant calls from college coaches.

 

"I give coaches a call every now and then," he says. "I call Miami, just a couple of schools."

 

He still gets regular recruiting mail from colleges around the nation, of course.

 

"It's a lot every day," he says.

 

And his family has a small mailbox.

 

"It gets full," Thompson says. "I'll go through all the mail, but I don't read everything."

 

He says he gets a letter from Miami coaches every day.

 

"Coach (Marquis) Mosely writes me every single day," Thompson said. "He says Miami's the place to be, that he really wants me down there. That shows how interested they are and how bad they really want me."

 

Thompson's teammate, Damien Berry, has already committed to Miami.

 

Thompson doesn't plan on making such am early decision.

 

"After my five visits I'll make my decision," Thomson said.

 

Thompson says he has no frontrunners.

 

Of the Canes, he says, "Miami's up there. I like everything about them. There's the tradition, and if I go down there they say I can compete to play."

 

Thompson spent some time earlier this month with teammate Taurus McKinley's brother -- Hurricane DB Randy Phillips.

 

Phillips was back in town for the July 4 break.

 

"He told me how it is down there and stuff," Thompson said. "We just talked."

 

Thompson says the last time he spoke with UM coaches he talked to Marquis Mosely and Mario Cristobal.

 

"They were just talking, telling me how it is, how bad they really want me," Thompson said. "That was pretty much it."

i think we can always make a place for a player like that.. with his tools, he can play in so many different areas.. benn has size, little is raw, maybe a little dt speed? no im not saying any of those guys is better than the other, but imagine how balanced wed be

Is little being recruited as a WR? I don't think he will make for a good WR. He seems more of a TE or S than a WR. Just too stiff in his movements and that will really cause him to struggle at getting seperation from cornerbacks.

You're a very good poster Dangeruss. Keep up the good work. One question though, what makes you think ND has pretty much locked up Little? I'm hearing that UNC is still very much alive.

Ive given up on thompson and I think hes sorta overated anyway. I know this sounds like a homer atitiude but if he ran a 4.35 he wouldnt be a great prospect. Its just the 2 in 4.28 that looks catchy. We need football players on our side not track stars.

Cause 4.35 is slow?

 

 

I would take DT in a second. I would even take hiom over some of our other targets at WR. He is a burner and can play. There is no doubt.

 

TeamUlovetohate, try not to rub it in toooooo much when DT commits to you. I will be very jealous.

Deonte is a football player. If you found out Deonte was committing to ND, you know that you would flip out with excitement.

Of course i would take him but all im saying is he definately needs work to become a great college player. And no a 4.35 isnt bad at all. I was just trying to make a point that if his 40 time was a less than a tenth of a second slower, he wouldnt get near this much love. 40 times are overated.

 

Look at Noel Devine ( 1 min clip)

 

He runs a 4.35 but it seems to me like he's faster than Deonte in football speed.

 

Yes he is fast and could be a great football player one day but I believe right now he is a track star who plays football, not the other way around. He doesnt have many highlights or production compared to many other recievers in this class.

I think that we are looking pretty strong with Kamara, Benn, and most likely Little so far in this class. Although UNC is def. still competition for Little, there are a few things that he's said and done in the past that would indicate that he could very easily be Irish. I think we need to go after Jay Smith now since he has a little more speed than all of our other WR prospects. DT would've been a great pick up, but we can't get them all...enjoy TeamUlovetohate :(

devine won't qualify for college, he is border line right now and likely ends up at prep school, after saying that he surely wouldnt qualify for ND
