Top 50 guard Ethan Thompson to Oregon State

6′-4″ shooting guard Ethan Thompson of Bishop Montgomery (CA) will join his assistant coach father and older brother at Oregon State, having committed on Monday.

Before deciding on a family affair in Corvallis, Ethan Thompson reportedly also considered his father’s alma mater, Syracuse, and Stanford.

Thompson is the No. 51 prospect nationally in the 2017 class, and could be underrated at that ranking. He’s played in one of California’s top high school programs at Bishop Montgomery, has good size, guard skills and scoring ability. He should be an immediate contributor as a reserve at Oregon State.

Since taking over as head coach at Oregon State, it’s clear Wayne Tinkle has the program going in the right direction, and a big part of that will have been incorporating the Thompson family in the Beavers’ program. Both incoming sophomore Stephen Thompson and next year’s incoming freshman Ethan Thompson have the talent to be potentially all-conference players at some point while in Corvallis, and should provide the core to a quality backcourt group for the next several seasons.
