Three-star returns from UTEP

Three-star linebacker Brandon Thigpen (6-4, 200, 4.6) from Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde took his first official visit to UTEP this past weekend.

"My visit to UTEP went great," Thigpen said. "The coaches, the players and the fans showed me a lot of love."

"I was talking to some of the players and they told me the coaches at UTEP care about them a lot," Thigpen said. "You can talk to them whenever you want to whether it is about football or life. Every week your position coach has dinner at his house for his players."

"UTEP offered me a full scholarship in writing on Sunday," Thigpen said. "I didn't commit."

Thigpen is a member of the Rivals.com California top 100 for the class of 2007 landing as the Golden State's No 90 prospect at any position.
