Jamye's aunt works for me in our customer service department. Jamye's Dad is her younger brother.
She told me that Jamye has been working his butt off for the last 6 years in hopes of getting an Ohio State offer someday. Jamye also has serious NFL aspirations after college. The guy that has been pushing Jamye the hardest happens to be his Dad who is a Black Belt in Karate!
Note to self, don't mess with Thompson's Dad if you see him in the Shoe! Here's a pic of Jamye and his Dad at the Ceremony yesterday.
Very cool. I believe Jayme is also a black belt. Martial arts is completed underrated in the football world.
Javon Ringer, ex-Michigan State RB/All-American/Tennessee Titan, was a black belt in Karate. So many positives that the martial arts bring.

Yeah, he's an aggressive player. Don't think he's afraid of contact at all. The kind of guy you need at Safety.
Jayme and his father were on the local news some 8-10 months ago for a feature highlighting area athletes. The coverage detailed Jayme's workout program he does with his father. It is certainly intense! Jayme's father had him flipping huge tractor tires and other unorthodox exercises. There is no question he is/will be a very hard worker.
think you could find a link for us on that? sounds interesting to check out
Hines clone? What an incredible secondary class overall. Speed, coverage skills and heavy hitters across the board. Conley, Apple, Burrows, Bell, Thompson, Lee and maybe even Worley. This group rivals the offensive playmakers in the '13 class without question! Competition in practice is going to be like nothing ever seen in Columbus in a real long time.
Dang, I hope Shane Morris can find the accuracy to complete just one pass over the middle in the next 4 years so the ninja can go to work.
"The Ninja". Great nickname.
His dad looks like snake doctor from the unit. Aka Pedro cerrano.
damns...the first lady is hot as hell....smoking hot
them girls are REAl!!!
Welcome, Jayme Thompson, to Buckeye Nation!
Jayme is part of the best DB recruiting class at TOSU in at least 20 years, IMO.
Work hard (you obviously do), listen to your parents (you obviously do), study hard, and play fast.
As a member of Buckeye Nation, you will be family to all Buckeye Alumni for life.
Good Luck, Jayme!
I think that while there are benefits for everyone, martial arts is great for defensive players especially. We've seen for years what wrestling does for lineman, but for the back seven a striking art like Karate is great. Sparring at a high level is all about reading and reacting so quick it has to be subconscious. If you have to think about the assignment, you're late to the play. You practice technique and strategies for so many reps that you can hit your target before the window closes. Add to that the hip flexibility you train along with the ability to read the body of your opponent. If you read the hands or feet in sparring you get killed, it's all about the hips.
Pair that with seeking contact and attacking the man across from you and it's a great match. I've trained a few football players in my years, but none as athletic as Jayme. Most guys pick one sport at that point just because of the time commitment.
