It makes me so happy to announce that I have officially committed to The University of Virginia! I just want to thank everyone who has helped me and supported me along my journey! #GoHoos pic.twitter.com/8lvhUubZOs— Dylan Thompson (@BRONCODE59) February 24, 2018
Thompson was the No. 18 recruit in the state of Illinois coming out of high school and joined OSU’s 2014 recruiting class over Clemson and Tennessee, among others.
Thompson was academically ineligible for the 2016 season after fighting injury problems throughout his time in Columbus, and was not on scholarship last year. He played two games in the scarlet and gray, both in 2017 against UNLV and Illinois.
Thompson often shares a glimpse into his workout regimen on Instagram.
UVA defensive line coach Vic So’oto is happy with Thompson’s decision.
