Thompson commitment big step for Majerus
May, 16, 2007
6-foot-11, 255-pound center Brett Thompson (Vienna, Ill.) gave a verbal commitment to head coach Rick Majerus Tuesday, the first player for the Billikens in the Class of 2008. Thompson is a top-100 player who had offers from many high-major programs like Indiana, Purdue, Iowa State and Alabama. "Brett and his family enjoyed their unofficial visit and getting to know coach Majerus," Vienna head coach Rick Metcalf said. "One of the main reasons he choose St. Louis is coach Majerus' ability to develop players for the NBA."
