this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Shaq Thompson has eliminated us after this weekend. His new top 3 are ASU, Cal, and Washington. He's taking his last official visit to Utah in 2 weeks. He also semi-eliminated Oregon and said this,
"Those three have my attention right now," he said. "I was feeling Oregon too but the more I think about how small Eugene is, I'm not sure that fits me. I'm kind of a big city guy."
I'm not sure how big Eugene is but I don't really consider Ann Arbor a big city.
Barring something crazy happening, it doesn't look like he'll visit. We always knew he was a longshot but it was still nice to think we had a fighting chance.
Shaq Thompson not visiting for Nebraska. Insider article basically says that the trip is cancelled to focus on his HS team. However, he is still talking with the coaches and hopes to make it in December. Does not have a leader.
I just chatted with five-star CA S Shaq Thompson on Twitter, and he confirmed to me that he'll be taking an official visit to Michigan. Thompson is the top safety in the country and the #12 player overall on Rivals, so this is obviously huge news. Still waiting to hear back from him about which weekend he's visiting (it's either Nebraska or OSU, obviously, and I'm guessing it's the latter), and I'll let you know when I find that out.
