Johnny Thompson has been a wanted man — wanted by college football recruiters that is.
The rising senior at Apalachee High School has made a verbal committment to play for the Purdue Boilermakers. Other schools who had been courting Thompson included Wake Forest, Colorado State, Ohio, Syracuse and Western Carolina.
“Purdue is a great school and really pushed academics,” Thompson said Monday morning. “I look forward to getting up there after I finish high school. This will be a great opportunity for me.”
