Sam Thompson

Name: Sam Thompson

Overall Rank: #49

Position (Rank): Small Forward (#14)

College: Ohio State

High School: Whitney Young (Illinois)

Height: 6’7

Weight: 185

Evaluation: Thompson is a versatile player who is one of the best dunkers in the country. He is very athletic, great in transition and can finish very well whether it’s via a dunk or making a bucket through contact. He is also very long and can guard multiple positions and can fill up the stat sheet with blocks if you aren’t careful. Thompson is a good slasher as well and is selfless enough to pass it to the open man on the perimeter or a big man waiting for the easy deuce. It’s clear that he needs to work on his outside shooting since defenders in college will just give him some space and force him to take it or pass it. If he can develop a better shot he will be dangerous as a Buckeye.

Notes: Committed to Ohio State in September, 2010

Awards: 2011 All-American Championship Participant
