I recently had the pleasure of interviewing 2022, 4-star Cornerback, Isaac Thompson. Thompson attends school at St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. According to 247 Sports, the high school football star is ranked 183rd nationally and 24th among corners.
Currently, Isaac has many offers from a variety of Division 1 schools, including Michigan State, Arizona, and Arkansas (just to name a few) but has not committed.
Q: What is it like being a college prospect? Is there a lot of pressure?
A: It’s great being a college prospect because I’m seeing all of the results of all the hard work I’ve been doing since I was in 2nd grade. There’s no pressure. Just because I’m a college recruit doesn’t change who I am as a person and I don’t have a big ego so I don’t feel I need to prove anything to anyone.
Q: Your dad played at Michigan State, will that play a role in your recruitment?
A: I don’t think it will affect my decision but I will for sure consider Michigan State more.
Q: Who has been your mentor on and off the field?
A: I would say my brother and my dad. They both played college football, my dad at Michigan State and my brother at Georgetown.
Q: What school would you consider your dream school?
A: I wouldn’t say I have a dream school but I was most excited about my offers from Michigan State, Missouri, and LSU.
Q: What school reached out to you first?
A: Missouri reached out to me first but my first offer was from Arizona.
Q: When do you plan on committing?
A: Around this time my junior year.
Q: Who was your favorite player growing up?
A: I would say Jalen Ramsey
Q: What do daily workouts and nutrition loom like for you?
A: I usually go 4 times a week with either one of my trainers and I don’t have a nutrition plan right now besides trying to get as much protein in my meals as possible
Q: What schools would you like to visit first after the pandemic?
A: Michigan State, Illinois, LSU and, Missouri.
Q: What schools stand out to you and why?
A: I would say USC, Illinois, LSU, Missouri and, Michigan State because all of those schools either reached out to me very early or I have really good connections with people on the coaching staff or team.
Q: What advice would you give to someone who wants to play college football?
A: I would tell them just to work as hard as possible and play football because you love football not just for offers and popularity
