Thompkins committed to Penn State on Saturday.
After watching Penn State in its annual Blue-White Game on Saturday afternoon, Swansboro (N.C.) wide receiver DeAndre Thompkins didn't take long to tell the coaching staff that he wanted to be a Nittany Lion.
The Top247 prospect committed to head coach Bill O'Brien with his father present.
The Nittany Lions were among the first to offer the 6-foot, 170-pound wideout. He has picked up offers from Clemson, Notre Dame, Tennessee and others this spring.
He visited Penn State in the fall for a game.
"Just weighing the pros and cons of the University, I've been there before today and I still got the same vibe from the coaches, the area and the people," he said. "There's a lot of good things that you can really get out of that University."
Thompkins carries a four-star, 92 rating from 247Sports. He checks in at No. 173 in the latest installment of the Top247 and is the No. 9 prospect in North Carolina.
