Missouri Offers Lufkin’s Jerrin Thompson
With the season now done, expect the offers to start coming in for Jerrin Thompson.
One has already arrived for the 2020 Lufkin DB, who tweeted Monday that Missouri became the 10th school to offer him a scholarship.
Thompson holds additional FBS offers from Arkansas, Oklahoma, Penn State and plenty more schools.
Through Lufkin's first round game with McKinney North, Thompson had 87 tackles (including four for loss), 15 pass break ups and one interception. Lufkin finished the season 10-2 after falling in the area round to Frisco Lone Star, 49-21.
Missouri competes in the SEC and is coached by Barry Odom. The Tigers finished the regular season 8-4 and 4-4 in conference play.
Thompson, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any school that offers him beginning in December of 2019.
