Check out's video library of Duke bound, three star Georgia running back Juwan Thompson.

Prospect: Juwan Thompson
Status: Duke Commit - Class of 2010
Position: Runningback
Vitals: 5'11, 212lbs

Noteable: In 2007 Thompson was All South Metro and All Region 4AAAA as a sopohomore. He rushed for 650 yards with five touchdowns and 119 yards receiving. In 2008, as a junior, Thompson rushed for 1210 yards and 16 touchdowns on 171 carries.

Scout's Take: Thompson is the latest in the line of big, productive GA RBs. Is a downhill runner who demonstrates a certain toughness and power, but also has the ability to accelerate away from second and third-level defenders. Also has very good hands and poses a legitimate threat out of the backfield. Could emerge as one of the top backs in the state of Georgia for 2010. -Scout's Burke Hayes

Quotable: "When other schools came to recruit me, it wasn’t the same as Duke. Other coaches acted different and did not make it as much fun as they did. They were always happy, easy to talk to, and I just felt comfortable. They treated me like family from the very beginning.” - Juwan Thompson (Thompson Picks Duke)
