Bulls WR Thompkins commits to Hurricanes

The University of Miami landed a commitment from another Northwestern wide receiver Wednesday.

And it wasn't Tommy Streeter.

Senior Kendal Thompkins became the latest member of the nation's top-ranked high school football team to orally commit to the Hurricanes.

''I'm excited about it, I was waiting for this offer for a long time,'' Thompkins said. ``I always loved UM and it's a dream come true knowing I could finally go there and be a part of their program.''

Thompkins (5-11, 170 pounds) is having a stellar season, with 491 yards on 26 catches and six touchdowns. He ranks second on his team in yardage and touchdowns behind fellow UM commit Aldarius Johnson, who has 39 receptions for 541 yards and seven touchdowns.

Thompkins said he committed on the spot to the Hurricanes, who offered him a scholarship on Wednesday. He said he has no other college offers.
