Shurod Thompson had a bunch of impressive catches this past weekend at the Pylon Sports 7on7 in Las Vegas but every school recruiting him likes him at defensive back.
At 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds in the 2016 class, the Pittsburg, Calif., standout should see his recruitment pick up in a big way throughout the next couple years.
Weber State is the first program to offer Thompson, a good-looking safety at the recent RCS Northern California, and he said Cal, San Jose State, Georgia and UCLA are coming after him the hardest early on.
It's so early for the Pittsburg recruit so Thompson is planning camp stops this summer and more offers could be on the way.
"I'm going to be patient, go to camps and get better," Thompson said. "I want to show colleges I can play on both sides of the ball.
"I'm going to Cal's camp and Oregon's camp and that's about it so far. I could definitely go to a few more."
The Golden Bears have an early lead for Thompson, who said he knows Cal had a disappointing 1-11 season but he loves the campus and really likes what coach Sonny Dykes is doing to turn the program around.
Cal has been recruiting him from early in his high school career and it's the school that stands out right now.
"They've wanted me since Day 1, since my freshman year," Thompson said. "I like the campus, I just like how coach Sonny Dykes has a young team but he's going to get them better. They're going to be good this season."
