The faxes keep rolling in as the staff has now received a letter of intent from Lombard, Illinois native and Montini Catholic defensive end Dylan Thompson. The 6'5, 270-pound, Thompson committed to Ohio State in March of 2013, over scholarship offers from major conference programs such as Arkansas, Clemson, Tennessee, Missouri and Iowa, just a little over a month after receiving his offer from the Buckeyes. Dylan's commitment went down while in Columbus on an unofficial visit with his family, where he got to get familiar with the OSU coaches, players and the beautiful campus.

Thompson, not just a top lineman but one of the top overall players in Illinois, helped lead Montini to an overall record of 13-2 last season and a shot at the State's 5A Championship, to only come up short to Sacred Heart-Griffin. Even though he was doubled, if not tripled-team by opposing offensive linemen all season long, Dylan, a three-star prospect, still finished his final year on the prep level with 65 tackles and a unbelievable 17 sacks.

Our Christopher Jason took a look at Thompson's tape, and had this to say about the defensive lineman:

Thompson is a very solid defensive tackle who has the intangibles to get into the defensive line rotation right away. He is a workout warrior and does well against the run and as a pass rusher. He is quick off the ball for his size and is a disruptive force on the line of scrimmage. By mid-to-late season, I expect to see Thompson to see the field in the defensive line rotation.
