Irving HS Product Jevonte Thompson Commits To UH

Jevonte "JJ" Thomspon has committed to play basketball for the University of Houston, according to Eric Rossi of Rivals.com.

This time it’s for real, after a false alarm a week ago, Dallas area PG JJ Thompson has committed to Houston.

Thompson, a 6-foot, 185-pound point guard out of Irving High School, is rated a three-star prospect by both Rivals.com and ESPN.com. He also plays football and could potentially see time on the gridiron, though basketball appears to be his primary sport.

ESPN.com has a brief scouting report of Thomspon, whom they rate an 89/100.

The stocky lead guard runs the show with great precision only to take things into his own hands when needed. The lefty can get into the lane with his strength and quickness at will and has the fortitude to finish plays once there. If defenders start to play the drive he is more than capable of knocking down the perimeter shot off the dribble. Defensively is where he could change the game for his team. With constant ball pressure and balance Thompson harasses guards into submission gradually wearing them down with his pressure.

Thompson joins three-star SG Jherrod Stiggers on the list of 2011 UH basketball commitments.
