Poly grad Thompson commits to Grambling State

Poly graduate Marcel Thompson committed to Grambling State on Thursday. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard, who plans to major in communications, will join another Baltimore-area native, Chase Cormier, a senior guard from Milford Mill, on the roster next year. "I put a lot of stress off now that I have a school to go to. I feel good about it," said Thompson, who also considered Delaware State. "After I went on the visit, I was convinced." After graduating from Poly last year, Thompson played for Coastal Academy in Belmar, N.J., and the Cecil Kirk Amateur Athletic Union program.
