The Recruiting Guy:
Top 2022 target plans Arkansas visit; decision coming
ESPN 4-star safety Isaac Thompson visited Arkansas on Feb. 1.
An ESPN junior 300 prospect plans to announce his college decision soon, and a visit to Arkansas is in his plans.
Highly regarded junior athlete Isaac Thompson will announce his college on Dec. 4.
Thompson — 6-1, 192 pounds, of St. Louis University High School — announced his top 10 list of Arkansas, Missouri, LSU, Texas, Southern Cal, Michigan, Ole Miss, Penn State, Florida and Georgetown on July 21.
ESPN rates him a 4-star recruit, the No. 20 safety and No. 245 overall prospect in the nation for the 2022 class. Thompson and his father visited Fayetteville for Coach Sam Pittman’s first junior day on Feb. 1.
The father and son recently visited Michigan. They hoped to visit Arkansas this weekend for the LSU game, but they probably won’t be able to make it.
Thompson's father, Hickey Thompson, said they will definitely visit Arkansas next weekend. He said he wants Isaac to get a feel for the city of Fayetteville.
Hickey said he had a great conversation with Pittman on Sunday.
