Dylan Thompson

Defensive Lineman

6-foot-4, 271 lbs.

Lombard (Ill.)

Montini HS

Status: Unsigned


Thompson was another player that seemed to know where he wanted to go all along and even before he had his Ohio State offer he was talking up the Buckeyes at a Core 6 event in Cincinnati (Ohio) in February of 2013. The big defensive lineman held offers from more than ten schools but never seemed to give much of a look to anyone else. He was another player that people wanted to circle around for when Vrabel left but he has been a vocal member of the recruiting class and seemed to be one of the least likely to shy away, even with a coaching change at his position.

Scouting Report: "He's a hard worker and he's a big, strong kid that I think will probably have to move down to the interior. He's not a great athlete but he plays with a lot of passion and a lot of energy." - Midwest analyst Josh Helmholdt
