2014 athlete DeAndre Thompkins (Swansboro, N.C./Swansboro) earned a Penn State scholarship offer today, and NittanyNation caught up with him in the afternoon to see how his recruitment is going and what he thinks about Penn State:

NittanyNation: Your recruitment is really starting to pick up; you have five offers already. Did you kind of expect this back when you were a freshman, or has this come as a surprise?

DeAndre Thompkins: It kind of came as a surprise. But, when I first came here, Coach told me if I worked hard, colleges would come to see me. So it was kind of a surprise, but I was still looking forward to that. He told me that summer after my freshman year. I came here Aug. 1 from Georgia.
