Did coach Elliot say the Thompson kid is Klay brother
Broc Thompson is the son of former MLB outfielder Ryan Thompson and the younger brother of former Ohio State and current NBA G-League center Trevor Thompson.

This kid looks exceptionally talented and only got passed over by some of the "big boys" because he's not huge. Had a couple of G5 offers (Utah State, Ball State), originally committed to Ball State, but when he didn't sign early with them, things got a bit "weird" and we were able to swoop in and get him. The #1 receiver (setting most of the school receiving records) at the #1 school in Indiana that plays in one of the toughest conferences in the country (http://www.maxpreps.com/news/s-dztGFk80 ... r-2016.htm). Ben Davis HS won the 6A (top level) state championship game this year, 63-14...in a game where Broc Thompson caught for 109 yards and 3 TDs on 5 catches: http://www.ihsaa.org/Portals/0/boys%20s ... 0FINAL.pdf

Here's some more info on him: http://www.thejaygravesreport.com/its-o ... s-genuine/
I think he will step in and make an immediate impact.

I was going to ask the same thing. I haven't heard a peep one way or the other. Hope he sticks with his verbal commitment, but who knows what other possibilities have come his way in the last couple of months.

No word either direction. A lot of kids wait until lunchtime or the afternoon and do a signing "ceremony" in their HS gym or something. It's entirely expected that some guys official NLI's won't come through until later in the day. If I had to guess, I'd say we probably still have him, but as I'm sure you know, nothing is official until the NLI comes across the fax machine.

I don't know anything but my guess is either signs with us or goes somewhere for track.

I guess Deion is still a mystery. Sounds like a good, solid recruiting class. I'm ready to hear about spring ball!
