There are several advantages in attending a high school that has a powerhouse football team -- the wins, the exposure.

But for 2014 running back recruit Ashton Jackson (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood-Madison) the main advantage has been asking older players for advice during his own recruiting process.

"I asked them how to talk to coaches so that I could know how to talk to coaches," Jackson said. "They gave me good advice on that. Made me more relaxed. Initially I was scared to just call a coach. But they told me, 'It's fine, just call them. That's what you do.' "
