After visiting OU last weekend and coming off a visit to Baylor just days ago the 6-foot-6, 290 pound run-blocker chose to make his decision early and put the recruiting process behind him.
Thompson said that his decision came down between Baylor and Oklahoma. In the end the high school junior chose the Sooners over the Bears and says he is totally committed to OU, no matter who comes knocking.
"I don't want to be rude or anything but I'll let them know that I'm already committed and I'm 100-percent committed to Oklahoma," Thompson told Rivals.com. "I'm going to try and treat it like a relationship, if you get married you don't keep dating around."
With Oklahoma running short of offensive lineman, Thompson will ensure that the Sooners will reload in 2010. It also looks like OU has a great chance to pick up two more offensive lineman prospects in Chad Lindsay and Dominic Espinosa. Both are friends of Thompson and have showed high interest in OU.
