Paul VI senior Aaron Thompson committed to play college basketball at Butler on Tuesday. His decision came two-weeks after he decommitted from Pittsburgh.
Thompson took a visit to Butler last week, according to the Washington Post’s Jacob Bogage. He picked the Bulldogs over Ohio State, VCU and Dayton.
Thompson averaged 10.9 points per game during the 2016-17 season, where he was named first-team All-Met and guided Paul VI to the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship game. Thompson also became Paul VI all-time winningest player.
Thompson, who is rated a three-star by 247sports, is known for being a solid defender. He is good at generating steals and going after loose balls. His ability to run the offense, and be a playmaker is another reason why he was one of the top guards in the area this year.
