2024 DL Champ Thompson announces late July visit to Alabama

·2 min read

Alabama has begun its pursuit of promising recruits in the 2024 recruiting cycle. The Tide recently landed a commitment from 2024 tight end Martavious Collins. They also appear to be in good standing with several other recruits. One of whom is defensive lineman Champ Thompson. He is planning on taking a visit to Tuscaloosa on Monday, July 25.

Earlier this month, Thompson released his top-ten schools. The ten programs that were listed include Clemson, Texas, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Georgia and Miami. He also recently added Notre Dame and Penn State to his list of potential programs.

His lone visit so far was to Georgia Tech.

Thompson is being recruited primarily by Charles Kelly and Freddie Roach. The product of Meadowcreek High School is listed at 6-foot-3, 250 pounds. It is unclear how the Tide’s coaching staff would play Thompson along the interior or off the edge of the defensive line.

In the coming years, it will be essential for Alabama to out-recruit Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs for talented prospects out of Georgia. As of right now, Clemson has a slight lead at a 37.7% likelihood to land Thompson, according to On3’s RPM. Georgia has the second-best odds at 17.3% and Alabama comes in third at 14.8%. Still, Alabama is expected to be firmly in the mix.
