When it comes to visits, Tatum, Texas defensive tackle Isiah Thompson is just waiting for his invite and he'll start setting things up.
Texas Tech, since offering, has been a clear leader in his mind and many thought that by now the 6-foot-4, 315-pound Thompson would have set a trip to Lubbock to check things out.
"It's whoever really tells me to come down and visit," Thompson said. "Whenever that happens, I'll probably end up taking a trip. I don't want to go to that many, so I'm just trying to figure out who really wants me to come."
The Red Raiders are still the logical choice with his first visits because Thompson is still firm on a leader.
"I'm still thinking about going and there and looking at them," Thompson said. "They're still the favorite. At the same time, I'm looking at every single option. I like it a lot up there and I really like everything they have to offer. I just want to make sure that there isn't a better situation for me somewhere else."
Tatum is undefeated on the year and Thompson cites solid teamwork as the reason.
"We've got good skill players, good running backs, quarterbacks, and receivers, "Thompson said. "When we play together and get things done, stuff really starts happening for us. The closest game we had was a ten point win at the beginning of the season."
"The rest have been blowouts."
Thompson does not have a set date for his commitment.
