Deonte Thompson took unofficial to Miami Friday

Belle Glade, Fla., Glades Central High School WR Deonte Thompson visited Miami unofficially on Friday.

"I was just chilling, hanging out," said Thompson, who was taken around campus by coaches and teammate Taurus McKinley's brother, Randy Phillips.

Thompson had initially planned to attend Florida's Friday Night Lights but didn't make it because a coach changed plans and wasn't driving up there.

"My coach couldn't make it, so I went to Miami," Thompson said. "I'd wanted to get down there all summer. Now that I got the chance, I took it. I was down there a couple of hours."

Thompson says he spent a lot of time with coaches Mario Cristobal and Andreu Swasey.

"Cristobal, he's my dude," Thompson said. "He was talking about everything with me.

"They said `If you want to get to the next level, that Miami is the place to be, stuff like that. I'd already known all about Miami anyway."
