Nashville (Tn.) Lipscomb Academy linebacker Kris Thompson, who has over 20 offers already, visited Florida for the first time ever on Saturday for the Gators’ Jr. Day.


What was the highlight of your visit today?
“The highlight of my visit today was meeting Coach [Billy] Napier with my family. He said that he wants me to keep coming down and actually shadow a player for a day.”

Which coaches did you speak with the most, and what did they have to say to you?
“I spent the day with Coach Cannon Gibbs. I would say that he thinks that I am a priority and not only was he recruiting me he was recruiting my family.”

During last week’s junior day, one of the popular features was the player panel. What did the players really have to say about this program?
“The players’ panel was a time where we as recruits got to really ask questions to player and their overall response was explaining to us how life is as a student-athlete.”

What is the most impressive thing you saw either when touring the campus or during one of the presentations? What really stood out?
“The most impressive thing I saw was coach’s office. You really could see the beauty of the campus from the office.”

It’s still early for you, but do you have any leaders or a leaderboard?
“No leaderboard yet, but I’ll let you know.”
