A hungry group of sophomore prospects continue to take strides forward both small and large in both their development and recruitment.  One such talent who is quietly emerging as foreshadowed last fall after breaking out at the NY2LA Sports Futures Camp is 2021 PF Treyton Thompson of Alexandria High School in Minnesota.

A long wiry 6-10 180 pound plus forward, Thompson first opened eyes last October in Illinois where he put in a full day’s work of quality basketball on his way to capturing Mr. Intangible honors for the Class of 2021 prospects in attendance at the NY2LA Sports Futures Camp.  The talented forward opened a number of eyes then with the little things he did on the court, his size, and his ability to face up and rip the nets with a solid and at times dominant perimeter stroke.  

Under the umbrella of the Team GetShook grassroots travel program the talented young forward has continued to blossom.  His post work around the basket has improved, he’s added a bit more weight and strength, and his overall skill package has continued to take steps forward in terms of his ability to handle the basketball and score both in transition and off the bounce.  An excellent passing big man with vision and an excellent feel, the class of 2021 standout continues to look the part of a legitimate high major Division 1 prospect we projected his potential to be over a year ago.

Texas Tech has already offered him and he’s also been getting early interest from Minnesota, Michigan, Purdue, Northern Iowa, Utah State, and Drake amongst others.  As sophomores go Thompson is one of the more intriguing in the Midwest and equipped with size, skill, instincts, and a high ceiling you can expect his recruiting trail to fill up substantially over the next couple of years as he’s one of the prized up and coming prospects in Minnesota and he’s only scratching the surface.

Thompson played with the Minnesota based Team GetShook grassroots travel program in the NY2LA Basketball Association during the spring and early summer.
