Thompson spent the last couple of months working on his SAT score and was offered in successive weekends by Georgetown, Texas Tech and the Sun Devils. I'd had a score of other inquiries about him this spring as his recruitment heated up. I've known Coach Sendek for a long time as he and his staff recruited Pflugerville's Bryan Beasley back in 2005 when he was at North Carolina State.
Brandon is as complete a player as they come at the high school level. he will be a tremendous combo guard. He looks to get his team mates involved, can score when needed and knows when to take over a game. He's an excellent, long armed defender who can score from the perimeter, mid range, or get to the cup.
Brandon really asserted himself last summer in helping lead the Texas D-1 Ambassadors to the semifinals of the Mike Kunstadt's Denton Shootout hitting big shots at the end of two contests to win it for us at the buzzer including one against the Dallas Mustangs and Nolan Dennis (Memphis-Baylor signee) & Nick Russell (Kansas State signee). brandon will have a great career in the PAC-10. The sky is the limit for him. Congratulations to Brandon and his family from his basketball family, the Texas D-1 Ambassadors.Former Texas D-1 Ambassador Russ Permenter who signed with UT-San Antonio out of HS, decided to transfer back close to home this past season and spend a year at Temple JC. The move paid off for Big Russ as he is now headed to the rugged Big East to play for the Providence Friars.
