Blue-chip wide receiver Warren Thompson discusses his trust in new FSU coach Willie Taggart

The former Oregon commit now has FSU firmly among his top schools after taking an official visit this weekend.

Four-star wide receiver Warren Thompson

Few current recruits know Florida State head coach Willie Taggart as well as Warren Thompson.

The four-star wide receiver out of Seffner (Fla.) Armwood has a lengthy history being recruited by Taggart and that has helped the two develop a relationship.

"He’s been recruiting me for three years,” Thompson said at the conclusion of his official visit Sunday. “I feel comfortable with him and I feel like I could grow as a player with him.”

Thompson committed to Oregon over the summer in June and stayed committed through Taggart’s transition to FSU, decommitting on December 9th. His respect for Taggart grew after seeing how he handled the shift.

“Even when that whole thing was going down, he kept it real with me and stuff like that,” Thompson said. “I feel like honesty and trust play a big role."

Thompson’s host for the weekend was fellow wide receiver D.J. Matthews, but he said he also spent a good portion of the weekend with wideout Auden Tate talking about football with Tate giving him some advice.

Thompson will not be an early signee or an early enrollee. He has visits planned for January to North Carolina, Florida and Iowa State and he said that he does not have a leader at this time.

Former Oregon commit Warren Thompson says that Florida State Seminoles Football coach Willie Taggart is unique due to his honesty and up-front nature.
