Midwest Regional Scouting Director.
▪️ SIX STAR FOOTBALL SCOUTING REPORT A big time athlete for a youngster, North Gate Malachi Thompson recorded the most impressive overall numbers for his class in the combine portion of the Midwest Showcase, including a 4.90 laser timed 40-yard dash, the second fastest time among the class of 2027 prospects on hand. He also led the class with a 29 inch vertical, and a 100 inch broad jump — the later being an especially impressive mark given his age and 5’8 height. He was one just two 2027 prospect to break 5.00 in the 40, and the only player to record a 100 inch or more broad jump.
▪️ ANALYSIS Was an impressive all-around athlete at the Midwest Showcase, not only excelling in the combine portion of the event, but in the individual drills, agility and in competition. He is a smooth, fluid athlete with good flexibility and a long, lean build. Showed good change of direction skills and impressed with his footwork in the agility drills. Despite competing against older, more experienced players, Thompson held his own in the competitive portions of the event as well. He showed good hands and ball skills as a receiver and could develop into an impact receiver at the high school level as well.
▪️ GREATEST STRENGTHS Speed, athleticism, quickness, receiving skills
