2013 TN PG Darius Thompson

Darius Thompson

Darius Thompson - Yahoo! Sports


"Regardless of the reason, it's becoming clear that the Vols are looking to add point guard help in the late period. Towards that end efforts towards recruiting Murfessboro's Darius Thompson have ratcheted up lately.

Cuonzo Martin visited with Thompson and his family on Wednesday this week and Thompson is now holding a firm offer from Tennessee.

Unfortunately for the Vols, Thompson is no longer such a sleeper that they can expect to sweep in and nab him with no competition. Vanderbilt, NC State and Texas A&M have all offered in the last two weeks, and he other high majors are sniffing around as well.

Tennessee is hopeful of getting Thompson on campus this weekend for an unofficial visit, but right now he's trying to work out some transportation issues.

In any event, look for that one to end up being a Tennessee and Vanderbilt battle. Vandy got a little head start with a slightly earlier offer and they've already gotten Thompson on campus. Tennessee was in the home on Wednesday and from what we've gathered, have made up some ground and will get a serious look from Thompson.

NC State and Texas A&M have also been in to see Thompson recently and both programs extended offers immediately after evaluating him."

Guess that means he's already talked to Chievous about reassignment?

He looks ok. But he does not fill our need for quickness. He looks like a good ball handler but has average quickness. I have not seen much video on him so I could be wrong. I hope I am. Here is the Video from youtube.

I feel like people on this board wand Russell Westbrook or John Wall speed, or it's bust.

Yea I posted the same video and had the quickness questions at that same time. A couple things though...that video was against Memphis East, no scrub team so decent quickness against them is better than against say a local high school. Also, that video is a year old, at that time he had no high major offers iirc. What he has done his senior year is what has earned him offers from Vandy, A&M, NC STATE, UT etc....he's apparently progressed and really improved a lot.

You're not gonna have a lot of PGs you can find this late in the game and get in on, so this may be our best option (or Owootoah).
