Kansas RB talks training, potential visits

Don’t expect a commitment announcement until after the 2013 football season for running back Deron Thompson (Wichita, Kan./Northwest). Do, however, expect Thompson to fully benefit from his summer training.

While many football players are either going through traditional gridiron workouts or playing 7-on-7, Thompson is honing the one skill that could separate him: speed. Listed at 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Thompson’s lack of size quickly becomes a nonfactor when the conversation of his 4.28 40-yard dash time is mentioned.
