The Jay Graves Report

Why neither IU nor Purdue can afford to big time Broc Thompson! “Missin’ Out”

No.1 Ben Davis' Broc Thompson is the real deal and boyz are sleepin' on him! Photo: Summer Kegeris

Everybody and their baby’s momma is runnin’ around the state of Indiana constantly askin’ the question of why both IU and Purdue can’t win in football. I may as well throw IU basketball into this conversation too while I’m sittin’ here but for the sake of this foolishness let’s stick to football. Both squads are 3-5 overall with IU actin’ as the bottom feeder in the Big Ten East at 0-5. Purdue on the other hand, is swimmin’ around near the bottom like a catfish at 1-4 in the Big Ten West.

Between both schools they’ve got one legitimate wide receiver and that’s Simmie Cobbs Jr. at IU. He’s the truth all day long bruh. I’ve covered both schools on several occasions and it completely blows my mind that they aren’t in Indianapolis straight pillagin’ the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference known to all the real playas simply as the M.I.C.! It’s one of the Top 15 conferences in the country and it’s only an hour’s drive from both campuses. For most of this season they had 5 of the top 10 ranked teams in the state.

The best wide receiver in the state, Broc Thompson, plays for No.1 Ben Davis and neither school has yet to offer him. WHAT!!? He’s 6’2″ 173 lbs. with a brick in his pocket but he can fly. Ole boy runs a 4.4, has a vertical of 37.5 inches, he runs routs like a beast, fights for the football and catches everything in his vicinity. Y’all know the drill bruh. I wrote a crazy Hot Joint about him bein’ the most COMPLETE wide receiver in the state entitled “Science” a few weeks ago. If you didn’t peep it out you need to.

I’m not just talkin’ bruh the numbers don’t lie. Let me put it where the goats can get it. The dun’s got 890 yards on 56 catches and 13 touchdowns. He needs only 111 yards to become the first Ben Davis receiver to eclipse 1,000 in a season. He’ll get there because they’re on a state championship run and will more than likely play another four games. He’s only two catches from settin’ the all-time single season reception record at the school. Ole boy could potentially own 5 receivin’ records at one of the most storied programs in the state and IU and Purdue are sittin’ in the cut actin’ like they’re too good to make an offer. Are you kiddin’ me? How do you big time the best receiver in the state and you’re the bottom feeders of the Big Ten Conference.

It’s crazy to me that schools that are strugglin’ with NO wide receivers with the exception of Simmie Cobbs Jr. won’t step up and holler at this kid.

What’s mind blowin’ to me is that he’s only got offers from Weber State, Northern Iowa and Ball State so far because boyz keep sayin’ that he’s too small. He’s 6’2″ bruh!!! Yeah I know that he’s buck 73 soakin’ wet but that’s trainin’ table and strength and conditionin’! That’s an easy fix.

Are these schools sufferin’ from thinkin’ that they’re better than they actually are? I’m not just talkin’ about boyz missin’ out on Broc. I’m talkin’ about them missin’ on cats all over the city!! How are programs like Iowa and Minnesota runnin’ off in here snatchin’ kids up every year. There are multiple cats goin’ to play for the Hawkeyes and Golden Gophers in this senior class. Those programs don’t offer anymore than IU and Purdue. So why is that bruh? Because they’ve got better glasses and can see the players?

I completely understand boyz not bein’ able to sign Lawrence Central’s Cam McGrone who’s goin’ to Michigan because he’s on a completely different level. He can go anywhere in America. Same goes for ole boy Emil Ekiyor over at Cathedral that just decommitted from Michigan to commit to Alabama.

IU and Purdue can’t even sit in their livin’ rooms bruh! But there are several kids, includin’ Broc Thompson, that they are missin’ out on and it will come back to bite them in the butt.

I lost count of the number of balls the Purdue receivin’ corp dropped against Nebraska on Saturday alone and the best receiver in the state hasn’t been offered? Blows my mind! I would even understand if they were middle of the road programs in the Big Ten but they’re bottom feeders and wanna big time a boy.

Somebody’s gonna come in, offer this kid and they both are goin’ to miss out on a big time playmaker.  Trust what I’m sayin’ bruh. No disrespect to Ball State, Weber State and Northern Iowa but this kid is a big time college receiver and he’s goin’ to play in one of these Power 5 Conferences and when he does just say Jay Graves told me so.

Normally when a dun with this type of talent isn’t offered by the big boyz he’s got grade issues or behavioral problems that cats don’t want to fool with. Well…Broc has none of those. His so-called issue is that he’s 173 lbs. The first cat that understands that you can always put weight on him but you can’t teach him how to be a great receiver is goin’ to get one of the best wide receivers in America. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
