Per http://www.garnetandblackattack.com/...lb-jalen-henry

Henry joins four-star prospect and fellow Botkin recruit Sherrod Pittman as the second linebacker commitment in the 2015 cycle. He also joins Jalen Christian as the second Jalen of the 2015 cycle. South Carolina now lays claim to 8% of all available Jalens in the class. There are 25 Jalens in the 2015 class. So many Jalens.

Several years ago then USC secondary coach Ron Cooper reached into Mobile, AL and plucked cornerback Captain Munnerlyn who went on to become one of the best Gamecock defenders in recent history. The Gamecocks are going back into Mobile in search of corner help in the form of Jalen Thompson (6-0 170).
Thompson will visit USC Thursday and Friday with two friends and future prospects from Mobile, 2016 QB Tyrone Johnson and his brother 2017 LB Thomas Johnson.
“I have a lot of interest in South Carolina,” Thompson said. “It’s one of the schools I want to get to know about. The SEC is a bid deal because I’d love to play in the SEC. I don’t know that much about them. I’ve been doing research and I’ve watched them the last couple of years and I like what I’ve seen.”
Thompson has over 35 offers and said his focus right now is on USC, Kentucky, Georgia and Miami. The Gamecocks have made it clear to him that he is wanted.
“They’ve been pushing hard since the end of May,” he said. “It’s close among all the schools and I don’t have a leader.” Thompson wants to make a decision around the end of July.
Last season he had 39 tackles, 7 interceptions, 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and he returned 4 punts for touchdowns.

He had a great visit. UK is trending but that might change.

Captain aside, it's exciting to watch Jalen and so many other recruits from non-traditional recruiting states want to know more about being a Gamecock. They are wise to discern that 3 top ten finishes in a row is no fluke and Carolina's fighting spirit is perched on the verge of greatness. How could they not want to be the player that helps move things to the next level.

Go Thompson! Go Cocks!

Guess you thought wrong.

He's listed as an ILB on 247.

Unless you're not talking about Jalen Henry as I assume you are based on what you bolded in that quote.

CB from Wes on 247 for Carolina!

Re: 2015 - Jalen Thompson
 
With the majority of CB to Florida, Miss St and Kentucky, he says he will decide this Friday and it's between us and South Alabama. He visited both schools last week. Wes Mitchell just put in a CB to us.

This is interesting with Alexander committing to us today and Arnette likely to do the same tonight. This is a 4* CB from Mobile, Alabama. Tony Morrell has confirmed we will take 5 DB's in this class......Thompson would be #5 (Fields, Wilder, Alexander, Arnette (assuming he picks us tonight).

Interesting that the CB projections were so strongly towards UF, then to UK, but it's now between us and South Alabama??

Actually I saw after the first week of June he dropped UF as a favorite, even though 247sports still have them tied with UK as a favorite. But those are mostly based on old CB picks back in April and May, if not earlier....

Yea, it is a little strange, but good.....if Arnette and Thompson commit to us this week, we're done at DB.

ConwayGamecock 06-23-2014 07:04 PM

Re: 2015 - Jalen Thompson
 
The al.com article I read where it was indicated that Thompson dropped UF due to their heavy depth at CB concerns me. Surely he's seen 2 of our last 3 commitments come from DBs, and there's a possible additional DB commitment later tonight. I hope our own large Db class doesn't scare him away....
