After a breakout grassroots season with MTXE Premier, Roman Thompson has started to build college interest. This comes after making an impact at Kettle Moraine High School as a sophomore and helping them reach the state semifinals. 

While he had a strong spring, he really took his game to another level during the summer. “Last season with MTXE was phenomenal to say the least,” he said about his breakout season. “The coaching staff and the program director always pushed me to be my best, and to really be confident in my game and trust the work I’ve put in. I’m really looking forward to my next year with them.”

During his time on the NY2LA Association this past year, Thompson was one of the most energetic and impactful players at the 16U level. At both the Summer Jam and Final Chapter tournaments back in July, Thompson had stand out performances. “Pretty versatile player,” the junior said to describe his own game. “I have the ability to guard one through five, with my size and how I can move. On offense, I prioritize finding my teammates for open shots. I’m also a three-level scorer. I can score through heavy contact, can rise above defenders in the mid-range, and I have deep range from the three-point line and beyond which really opens up the rest of my game.” 

Right now, Thompson is receiving interest from schools mainly at the division two and three levels. When talking about his recruitment, Thompson said “I just to keep working like I have been and I’m confident I’ll be a prospect to really pay attention to.” For his upcoming junior season, Thompson has some team and personal goals. He is looking to be named first team all-conference and help Kettle Moraine head back to state.
