Next in Cass Tech's line of 2014 talent

By Chantel Jennings

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Detroit Cass Tech High School is known for producing talent. And the school has already had two juniors commit. Recently ESPN Watch List defensive back Damon Webb (Detroit/Cass Tech) gave his verbal to Ohio State and during the high school season outside linebacker Deon Drake Jr. (Detroit/Cass Tech) gave his to Michigan State.

Gary Hosey is banking on a strong 7-on-7 season to attract more offers.
But 2014 running back/linebacker Gary Hosey (Detroit/Cass Tech) doesn’t know how close he is to making a decision.

“It depends on how much my recruitment picks up in the next few months,” Hosey said. “I could see myself making an earlier decision, but it just depends on the connection I make with the coaches and what visits I go on.”

Hosey holds three offers (Illinois, Eastern Michigan and Wayne State) but is hoping that number will increase as he plays with Detroit’s MaxEx 7-on-7 team this spring and summer.

The 5-foot-11, 226 pound inside linebacker has interest from Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State and Toledo and is hoping his spring/summer game tape is strong enough for interest to turn into offers.

“I’ve been working on my speed and quickness, so hopefully I can show that off in these 7-on-7’s,” Hosey said. “I feel like that’s what I need to work on and [Cass Tech coach Thomas Wilcher] has brought it up a few times.”

Until then, the junior is planning to take in Ohio State’s junior day in February and will be participating at the Nike SPARQ Combine in Massillon, Ohio, on Feb. 16.
