McEachern High School quarterback Trent Thompson has committed to Georgia State.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder picked Georgia State over Tennessee Tech, and he also had serious interest from Samford and Troy. Thompson has passed for 2,700 yards and 28 touchdowns with only 6 interceptions over the last two seasons at the Cobb County school.
“He’s everything you want off the field in a quarterback, as far as a great person, a leader, and a guy you want to be the face of the franchise” McEachern coach Kyle Hockman told the AJC. “On the field, Trent has really started to come into his own. I think his best years of football are ahead of him. He has grown, and he’s gotten much stronger. He’s a passer first but athletically he’s made some big strides there. He has a very strong arm and a commending presence on the field. He’s a joy to have.”
Thompson committed to Georgia State after making an unofficial visit to Georgia State on Friday. “I went to their practice, hung out for a while, and I kind of fell in love with the place.”
QB is a great position of need for Georgia State. The Panthers have another commitment at QB in Chattooga High School’s Nathan Schuster. Thompson said he was led to believe that the athletic Schuster may be tried at WR in college.
