Olito Thompson has put up impressive statistics the last two seasons and that means even though he's committed to Washington State other programs are not going to stop recruiting him.
The 5-foot-10, 210-pound three-star running back from Concord, Calif., has rushed for 1,806 yards with 23 touchdowns on 212 carries so far this season and that's following a junior campaign when he had 3,488 yards and 34 touchdowns on 408 touches.
Thompson, who shined at the Oakland NIKE Camp this spring, has been committed to Washington State since July but said teams are still reaching out to him and he's at least willing to listen.
That will come after the season.
"Schools are still recruiting me," Thompson said. "They're still coming after me. A lot of schools are checking out my transcripts now so I won't be sure which ones want to get involved until the end of the season."
Arizona, Washington, San Jose State and Nevada are the main four programs still recruiting Thompson, rated as the No. 42 running back in the 2013 class by Rivals.com and No. 71 in the California state rankings.
His commitment to Washington State still stands but Thompson said after his senior season that he's going to consider all options leading toward signing day. That might mean other visits.
"I'm still looking at all colleges," Thompson said. "I just made a verbal commitment to Washington State so I'm still open to hearing from other colleges."
Concord faces Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande which features four-star defensive tackle Elijah Qualls and 2014 quarterback JaJuan Lawson this weekend in the state playoffs.
