National Signing Day, Syracuse Recruiting: Tight End Ron Thompson Makes It Official

via twimg0-a.akamaihd.net

The Syracuse Orange say goodbye to Nick Provo this year after the senior decimated the SU record books as a tight end. If he can live up to the hype, Southfield High School tight end Ronald Thompson might just do the same thing before he's done.

Thompson officially committed to play football for Syracuse in 2012 during National Signing Day today.

Stat Me: Thompson caught 51 passes for 506 yards and seven touchdowns this season. In his junior season, he accumulated 41 receptions for 808 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Rivals says...he's a three-star talent and the 15th-best player in Michigan.

Scout says...he's a four-star player, the 13th-best tight end in the nation and Syracuse's top recruit overall.

ESPN says...he's a three-star guy with a grade of 78.

Who's Crying?: According to recruiting sites, Thompson chose SU over Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Vanderbilt, Bowling Green, Illinois and Toledo.

Money Quote: "The history and some of the guys that have come out of Syracuse like Donovan McNabb and Dwight Freeney. They're young and their offensive coordinator (Greg Adkins) is really what got me. They're energetic and I'm really excited to play for them. How they care about their players, and how you can trust what they're saying, and they're not telling you something just because you want to hear it."

Which SU Coach Gets A Bonus?: It's Michigan so Tyrone Wheatley was the main man, though Ron referenced Greg Adkins as well.

Fun Fact: Thompson has played just two seasons of organized football.
