Brandon Thompkins signs with BC Lions

VANCOUVER (KAIT) - Corey Leonard will have one of his favorite targets in Vancouver with him this summer.

Former ASU wide receiver Brandon Thompkins signed a two-year contract with the BC Lions. He'll join Leonard, and fellow ASU alum Daylan Walker on the roster.

Thompkins led the Red Wolves in receiving in 2008, and broke the Sun Belt Conference's kick return record in 2007.

It continues a ASU/BC connection. At last year's training camp, former Red Wolves Dominique Williams, Stanley Wakwe, and Darren Toney all vied for opening day spots.

BC Lions Training camp starts June 5th.
