Thursday, November 22, 2007


The Washington Post is reporting that Hollis Thompson, a 6-6 junior forward from Los Angeles (Loyoa High), made an unofficial commitment to Georgetown yesterday. This is the first verbal commitment that the Hoyas have received for the class of 2009. ranks Thompson as the 11th best overall prospect in the class of 2009 and the 2nd best small forward in the class. ranks Thompson as the 24th best prospect in the class of 2009. According to, Thompson was also being recruited by Duke, Stanford, Florida, North Carolina Arizona and UCLA. Thompson was among the recruits that attended Midnight Madness at McDonough at the beginning of this season. I guess Jerry Rice's rendition of the Soulja Boy dance was more persusaive than I orginially thought.

Thompson noted that the recruiting process had already been very long and that he wanted to get his decision out of the way so he could stay focused. In making his decision Hollis Thompson explained that, "[w]hat I really liked about John Thompson was that he told me he doesn't recruit positions, he recruits players."

Welcome to the Hilltop Mr. Thompson.
