Thompson, Schotts set to sign
Thompson tweeted Monday that the twosome were headed to the Tigers' spring headquarters in Lakeland, Fla., and confirmed via Twitter that they'd be signing "as soon as we pass our physicals."
The Tigers selected Thompson 91st overall, at the end of the second round, and Schotts 30 picks later in the third round.
Both players had been committed to high-level college programs — Thompson to TCU and Schotts to Oklahoma State — but were not considered signing risks. The Tigers vetted all their picks to confirm the chance of signing was high enough to warrant spending a pick.
Flying out to Lakeland tomorrow with the tigers new speed demon @austinschotts
