Burien (Wash.) Kennedy stud defensive end Everette Thompson embarked upon his first official visit this past weekend.

Thompson said that he enjoyed his time in Eugene.

"Everything was good. It was an exciting game and I liked the atmosphere out there," he said. "It was a good college town feeling. It was just crazy to see them beat USC."
