Junior TE reflects on combine

Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood Catholic junior tight end Colin Thompson was in San Antonio recently for the U.S. Army All-American Combine and he feels like he helped his stock.
The 6-foot-5, 245-pound prospect has a solid frame and could blossum into one of the nation's top prospects at his position.
Thompson has already picked up verbal offers from Boston College, Pitt and Rutgers, and he should continue to garner more attention.
"I just got back from the All-American Combine down in Texas and I think I performed pretty well," Thompson said. "I was one of the best tight ends there. My goal in the beginning was just to have good times considering our season ended December 13 or 14. I didn't have too much time to prepare and it's tough to prepare when you're with your family. Overall I think I did well.
"We only ran like five patterns because there were so many people there but I think I made the best of it."
Thompson had a good year for Archbishop Wood. He and his teammates were eliminated from the playoffs by the eventual state champion for the third consecutive year but he is optimistic because the team returns a lot of skill position players and linemen for their 2011 campaign.
On the year Thompson scored about six touchdowns on offense and registered eight sacks from his defensive end position.
Thompson has not been in contact with anyone from Pitt since the turmoil broke out around their head coaching position.
"Recently I've been talking to Michigan State and I think I'm going up there for a visit or a junior day," he said. "I think I'm going to junior days at Boston College and Rutgers, too."
