Exclusive Video: Thompkins Signs

Wednesday was a big day for many basketball prospects across the country and two from the Peach State inked with the Dawgs. We were on the scene at Wesleyan to see Howard Thompkins sign the dotted line.

Thompkins is a 6-foot-8, 225-pound four-star power forward out of Norcross (Ga.) - Wesleyan. He was recruited by many National programs across the country and he decided to stay home and become a Georgia Bulldog.

The versatile big man chose UGA over the likes of Florida, Georgia Tech, Florida State and many more back in May and he made his decision official on Wednesday afternoon.

We were in Norcross for the signing party and Thompkins coach talked about him as a player, what he did back as a sophomore, how he is about the team first and how excited he is about him returning home for his senior year after playing in Virginia at Oak Hill as a junior.

You can watch the signing ceremony here and hear his coach talk and then watch Thompkins sign his letter of intent.
