General McLane TE/DE Quinn Thompson issues verbal declaration to Connecticut

Written by: on Thursday, July 12th, 2012

General McLane, the 2006 PIAA AAA champions, will bump back up to the AAA classification this 2012 season.  And the Lancers make the move while claiming a Division-1 FBS prospect amongst their fold.

Quinn Thompson, a 6’5, 225-pound tight end/defensive end for the Lancers, issued a verbal declaration to Connecticut Thursday, according to the Erie Times-News.

During his recruiting process, Thompson held a total of eight scholarship offers, including the Huskies, but also from Boston College, Akron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Massachusetts, Ohio and Temple, while generating interest from programs like Kent State, Northwestern, Penn State, Pitt, Toledo and West Virginia, among others.

Primarily utilized as a blocker in General McLane’s potent flexbone/triple-option offense, Thompson helped to pave the way for a unit which averaged 316.5 yards rushing per game, producing four 700+-yard rushers, a feat matched by only one other backfield in all of Pennsylvania last season (Erie Strong Vincent, also of District 10).  Thompson hauled in three passes for 52 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 17.3 yards per reception, while adding 39 tackles (23 solo), three sacks, two interceptions, two deflected passes and a forced fumble defensively.

General McLane finished 10-3 overall in 2011, the program’s fifth season of 10+ victories since 2004 and third in a row.  The Lancers reached the District 10 AA championship game opposite Hickory, falling to the eventual PIAA AA quarterfinalist Hornets, 35-13.
