The Skinny

Thompkins is one of the most physically gifted players in the class, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. He was set to be a staple for powerhouse Grayson High, but suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first half of the Rams’ first game. He’s now had reconstructive surgery on both knees. Thompkins at one point was committed to Florida State and had interest from virtually every blue blood program in the country during his high school career. Now, can he get (and stay) healthy?

Running backs coach Ryan Held's take

"The thing with Ronnie is he’s got a really big frame, he’s a guy that’s going to be a 200-plus pound running back for us. Very talented, can run and catch. All the people at the school are really high on his work ethic. He’ll be coming off an injury but he’s a guy that will give us a spark this fall."
