Rivals.com:

"I put pressure on the quarterback," Thompson said.

His coach, Brandon Gregory, is more effusive in his praise.

"SEC caliber," Gregory said. "I've played football at the highest level, so I've seen a lot of guys. To sum it up, he's big and aggressive, but athletic. I've seen big guys who can't move. He can do both. He moves really well and demands double and triple teams. He frees up space for the linebackers to make plays, and they love him.

"He's a stud."

ESPN.com:

He is a big kid who can overpower his current level of competition, but he does need to keep improving and being more consistent with his technique. He will run to the ball and flashes the ability to move well for his size, but needs to be sure to use good angles and not hesitate in his pursuit. As a pass rusher has bull rush ability. Will flash the ability to attack half-a-man, but you see little in the way of hand usage and he needs to learn to better use his weapons and develop some moves that play to his strengths like the power rip to help him clear from blockers.
