(Covina) – Northview WR/DB Deshon Thompson is set to transfer to Muir he confirmed Monday night.

Thompson had 65 receptions for 1.242 yards and 11 touchdowns last season as a junior for the Vikings. He also had 34 total tackles and 4 interceptions from his free safety position for a Northview team that went 8-3 overall and fell to Ventura in the first round of the CIF Division 7 playoffs.

Thompson, who also received his first D 1 offer from Utah State, is originally from Pasadena so going back to Muir would be a homecoming.

“Pasadena I’m coming home #RoseCity” Thompson posted on Twitter.

Thompson said he will transfer to Muir after the Christmas break.

    Greener Pastures…SPOT ON!!! I’ll just leave it at that. Good luck to this young man, hopefully he learns some of this along the way.

    @Air Attack…if what you are saying is true regarding body language, behavior, and teamwork, then it should not be a surprise that he transferred. Selfish players transfer, not kids who have been raised with high character and moral values. After these kids are done with sports, they have nothing. They have trouble with relationships, stability, and finding good employment because all they’ve been taught throughout their lives is to run to temporary satisfaction. Shame on parents and coaches for facilitating this culture.

    Greener Pastures…there is no offer on the table. Have you seen his body language, behavior, “TEAM” work. No school would offer all that nonsense, he’s not worth it. Players on his own team are glad he left.

    The fact that the kid tweeted about going back to Muir before actually transferring is not a good look. An announcement like that certainly suggests that there was prior contact between the athlete and coaching staff. If true, the player would be ineligible to play his senior year and Muir would forfeit games in 2020. Playing the transfer game is not worth it for anyone, and why transfer if there is already an offer on the table?

    Mater Dei, Bosco, Sierra Canyon, and so forth are showcase programs. Kids want to transfer to these places and others like them as a sort of American Idol football audition. Has anyone ever asked what message these transfers send to the college scouts? If the negative comments on these boards are any clue, that message is that the heavily-traveled high school jock has issues, and probably isn’t as good as he/she thinks.

    A post on today’s Sondheimer twitter says that staying put at one’s local school and paying a private service for training is a far better (and easier) way to go. It also sends a positive message to the scouts that HERE is a kid who is cooperative with others, while making measurable efforts to improve. Stop for a moment and put yourself in a scout’s shoes and you’ll see the wisdom of this thinking.

    The recruiting wars are heating up already. It is going to get uglier with programs pulling out all the stops to attract talent.
