There are plenty of programs recruiting Shurod Thompson but the 2016 defensive back said one Pac-12 team in particular is coming after him the most.
"Cal has been recruiting me the hardest," Thompson said. "They're really interested. They've wanted me since the beginning so I'll remember that."
The Golden Bears have already offered the Pittsburg, Calif., safety and he recently took another unofficial visit to Berkeley for the Cal spring game.
Thompson was definitely impressed with how Cal's defense is changing for the better.
"I like the defense," Thompson said. "I like what coach (Greg) Burns and those coaches are doing with the defense. They're getting a little more intense and physical. I really like Cal, too, because it's close to home."
So far, Thompson has received offers from Arizona State, Cal, Colorado State, Washington State and Weber State. He also recently took a trip to ASU and really enjoyed watching the defense and said it could be a factor in his decision.
"It was a nice trip," Thompson said. "It was a little hot out there but there was a little breeze. I love the defense. They have a good defensive team and I like coach (Chris) Ball. I like ASU a lot."
The 2016 prospect from Northern California said he's been hearing more from UCLA and USC. There are preliminary plans to camp at Oregon, Cal, Arizona State, UCLA and USC this summer which means more offers could be on the way.
"A lot of them just want me to attend camps and keep my grades up," Thompson said. "They want to see me in person."
