Video: UGA signee Thompkins takes over

One of the three high school prospects to sign with Georgia last November is Howard Thompkins. Thompkins is the number 30 rated player in the country and UGASports has been tracking him all year.

Thompkins is a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward and is one of the best in the country at his position. He chose UGA over numerous other high profile offers last fall and his ability has to have the Dawg fans excited about his future in Athens.

We have been out to see him play a couple of times this season and he has not disappointed yet. Against Tucker, one of the top teams in the state, he put up 44 points and pulled down 16 rebounds.

You can his play right here as the Wesleyan Wolves fell to the Tucker Tigers 73-69 in a tough loss, but it wasn't because of the UGA signee's play.
