Today has been an exciting day for news regarding former and future Sun Devils. First, we find out that Rudy Carpenter and Mike Jones were signed by Texas NFL teams, then Steven Threet is coming to town to play for the old Maroon & Gold.
Brandon Thompson, a 6'2" shooting guard from San Antonio, Texas, has committed to Herb Sendek and the Sun Devils. He is our 5th recruit in the 2009 class.
The guard was selected to the All-State team, as well as All-District squad and was voted greater San Antonio Player of the Year. As a sophomore and a junior he was an all-region player as well.
As a senior, Thompson averaged 17.2 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 4.1 apg and 3.1 spg.
The guard came back from his ASU visit yesterday, and has also officially visited Texas Tech and Georgetown.
Just what we needed: another undersized shooting guard. Ty Abbott will really have to step up his game in 2009-2010 to keep his spot against this influx of young talent.
