It’s not unusual for football to run in the family, which is why it’s no surprise to hear a recruit mention his younger brother as a prospect to watch in the future. There are plenty of past and current prospects who now have brothers rising up in the ranks and creating a name for themselves.

The Big Ten alone has a handful of younger brothers who will be household names once their time comes. Here is a look at a few prospects with ties to the Big Ten.

2015 LB Justin Hilliard
Cincinnati, Ohio/St. Xavier
6-2, 230 pounds
No. 145 in ESPN Jr. 300

Brother: 2014 running back C.J. Hilliard, who signed with Iowa.

Offers: Arkansas, Boston College, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Ohio State and Penn State among others.

Last Stand For Wolverines?
Adam Rittenberg and Brad Edwards look at whether their game against Michigan State is an all-or-nothing affair for the Wolverines, and whether or not this year's Spartans are even better than last season's team.
