Some college football prospects have the opportunity to experience the recruiting process with an older brother, which allows them to be a step ahead when they actually go through it.
But for players like running back/linebacker Gary Hosey (Detroit/Cass Tech), who doesn't have any older brothers, it could've been overwhelming when Big Ten schools like Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin started recruited him during his sophomore year.
But luckily for Hosey, he has any number of Cass Tech teammates who have gone through the process that he can go to when he has questions.
"They just keep telling me, 'Have a good season and everything else will fall in to place,' " Hosey said. "It's pretty straightforward."
