"I have been to Alabama's Junior Day. Georgia Tech wants me to come to their Junior Day March 31."
Thompson talks with Scout.com about his visit to Tuscaloosa.
"It was a good visit. I enjoyed looking around the campus and seeing the practice fields. I liked looking around the weight room as well. I really enjoyed it," he said.
"I talked to coach [Kirby] Smart a lot during my visit. He was telling me about the program and how they are getting better. He told me they want me back up for their A-Day game so they can spend some one-on-one time with me."
"I like everything about Alabama. I think everything will go well with the new coaching staff. Alabama is a well known program, and they are one of the top schools in the SEC. I really like that about them."
The 6-0, 206-pound linebacker recorded 144 tackles, one interception and three fumble recoveries as a junior. He was named Defensive Player of the Year for the Valley area and honorable mention All-State.
Thompson is aware of his strengths and what he hopes to improve before his senior season.
"I feel like my strengths are finding my way to the ball. I know where the ball is going to make a play. I feel like my speed is a big strength," he said.
"I want to get a little bit bigger and stronger. I want to work on everything and be well-rounded."
Thompson does not list any favorites.
He plans to attend the Scout.com All-American combine in Atlanta May 26.
