6-foot-4 Schenck High School senior Justin Thompson has committed to play basketball  at Husson University for the 2017-18 season.

Thompson led his Wolverines from East Millinocket to the Class C semi-final round in each of the past two season.

He is the school's all-time scorer with 1,756 points, including 28 PPG this year. Thompson was a Mr. Maine Basketball semi-finalist.

"Justin had a great high school career and has a high level skill set which will translate to the college game very quickly," said head coach Warren Caruso. "Justin has an opportunity to make an impact on our program next year.  We like his length and skills at the wing spot.  Justin has the ability to effect the game in multiple ways, he shoots the ball well, can attack the rim, is a solid rebounder, and an exceptional passer."   - Husson Press Release
