Thompson, a 5-foot-9 point guard, is listed as a 3-star prospect with a scout grade of 90.
ESPN’s Dan Olson, director of espnW Hoopgurlz, on Thompson: “Athletic lead-guard with a scorer’s mentality; manufactures, elevates in mid-range game, developing deep threat consistency; uptempo contributor; anticipates, defends in pressure.”
As a sophomore, Thompson was co-player of the year of the Southeastern Conference, averaging a league-best 16.5 points per game for the Lady Pirates. She was also a terror on the defensive end, averaging six steals per game.
