Tramaine Thompson (b. April 10, 1990) looked better than ever during the spring game, putting to rest any fears that he might not have recovered fully from his injury in the Baylor game.

He amassed 106 yards and two touchdowns on just seven catches for the Purple team.

It's a testament to his toughness and determination that Thompson was ready to go for the Pinstripe Bowl, although the coaches chose not to take any unnecessary risks and keep him on the sideline.

In fact, given that Brodrick Smith's injury was slightly more catastrophic and that Thompson probably has more upside, since he has more eligibility remaining, I'm not so certain the latter isn't our best wide receiver overall.

He certainly looked like it April 30. Let's hope that carries through to this fall.
