Signee Profile: Thompson set to arrive soon



Christian Thompson

Safety
Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas
6-foot-2, 195 pounds



Thompson is one of three St. Thomas Aquinas alums in Auburn's 2008 class joining WR Philip Pierre-Louis as well as OL Jermaine Johnson . AuburnSports.com spoke with Thompson about playing with his high school teammates, his thoughts on new DC Paul Rhoads and more in the tenth of our profile stories of the 2008 Tiger signees.

On his workout regime: "I just got done with track season. Our 4x400 team placed third in the state. Since then, though, I've been working out. I got a workout program from Auburn and I've been doing that and some running. It's pretty tough, but it's not anything I can't do."

What team(s) are you looking forward to playing and beating at Auburn? "Any team that's not wearing Orange and Blue."

Qualifying status? "I'm qualified. I got more than enough on my SAT and my grades are fine. I'm doing good. I know I'm going to qualify. I'm really excited about that. I'm ready to go."
