    Also has an OK St offer according to this:



    Definitely P5 caliber talent. Would be a nice addition to our DL for '17.

    Yeah. Hopefully he's dyslexic. :D

    Slow down a bit. You're doing great work, but I think you got an avalanche of requests lately. Got to be hard to keep up.

    He's at Trinity Valley CC, apologies for the erroneous tweet. Jeffcoat and MacIntyre have spoken with Thompson. May graduate.

    Easy mistake to make. You don't see a lot of guys play at 2 different JUCOs. All his JC highlights and photos are in a Blinn jersey.

    I'm excited about Thompson based on the eyeball test. He just looks like a 3-4 NT. I think Franke is playing out of position there this season and we're going to see him move into Carrell's spot next season. I like Tuiloma's potential at NT, but we need more depth. Vital to get a JUCO at the spot in this recruiting class.

    Did are saying that he's a May graduate, or that he may graduate?

    Kyle's interview should be posting later today if it hasn't already, but one of the snippets is that Thompson has achieved a 3.7 GPA so far in junior college.

    What about Eddie Lopez? Don't you think he could contribute there? Seems like he is the right size, 6'3" 300.

    Sure. I haven't written off Eddy. Not sure if he's a natural NT, tho.

    Tyrell hopes to take an official to CU, sounds like Oklahoma State will get one as well. The Cowboys have been recruiting him since his junior year in high school. CSU has also offered. Jeffcoat and MacIntrye have been in touch for the Buffs.

    “[MacIntyre] said they could really use me, that they’re losing seniors this year. That I could walk in and play instantly and be a big impact to their defensive line.”

    NT so important for 3-4 D. Can't run it without a good NT. Tyrell looks like he could start today

    He'd be in the Carrell/Kafovalu spot, not the Tupou spot. Really fast and can handle read option action on the edge.

    First quote was based on photo. Second was based on Kyle's interview and Jeffcoat's projection.
