Another Power Five offer arrived for Lufkin's Jerrin Thompson on Wednesday evening.

Thompson, a 2020 defensive back for the Panthers, tweeted that Penn State became the latest school to offer him.

Thompson (6-0, 170) also holds FBS offers from Arkansas, Oklahoma, SMU, South Florida, and Vanderbilt. He has 19 tackles, including one for loss, this season.

He is one of several Lufkin players with FBS offers. The others are Carl Williams, Breylon Garcia, Javasia Brunson and Ja'Lynn Polk.

Penn State competes in the Big Ten and is currently ranked No. 9 in the country. The Nittany Lions are 4-0 and most recently defeated Illinois, 63-24.

Thompson, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any school that offers him beginning in December 2019.
