Creighton continues to get a leg up on the rest of the Big East in 2017 recruiting, as the Bluejays landed their third commitment of the class on Thursday afternoon.

Thompson, a Pine Bluffs, Wyoming native, measures 6'10", and will be able to help Creighton recover from the departures of Zach Hanson (6'9") and Toby Hegner (6'10") in the next two seasons. With Thompson, Justin Patton, and Martin Krampelj, the Bluejays will be able to maintain their style of big men freeing up guards on the outside.

Below is Thompson's sophomore highlight video. MaxPreps called him "Wyoming's Best Kept Secret", and he was the Player of the Year in the state.

Creighton still has three scholarships remaining for 2017, per VerbalCommits.
