Arizona State won out for the affections and talents of San Antonio-area shooting guard Brandon Thompson, who announced a commitment to the Sun Devils on Monday afternoon.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Thompson averaged 17.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 3.1 steals per game as a senior at Stevens High School, and was named the San Antonio high school player of the year by the News-Express as he led Stevens to a No. 9 ranking in the state.
Thompson was only on Texas State's radar until his breakout senior season. Since March he's received offers from ASU, Texas Tech and Georgetown.
Thompson is the fifth (and likely final) high school player to commit to the Sun Devils for 2009-2010.
