MaxPreps.com‘s Tom Lemming: One of the top two prospects in Northern California, Shaq Thompson has made a name for himself over the past two years. He can play offense or defense, and I believe he’s best suited to play free safety in college. He shows great range, hitting ability and can cover like no one’s business.
Tom Lemming; On offense he’s a big back with great vision, balance, strength, runs with his pads low, shows nifty moves, and the burst to get outside and turn the corner. On defense he is smart, quick, fast, hard working, and an incredible athlete. He shows the burst and pure speed to cut in front of a receiver and make the tough interception. Quick to diagnose, he can jump routes and has been blessed with exceptional ball skills. s
