Coldwater junior quarterback/defensive back Brody Hoying has the bloodlines. Soon he could have scholarship offers as well.
The 2013 National Guard & JJHuddle Ohio HS Offensive Football Player of the Year, Hoying (5-10, 182) visited Michigan State last week and attend Miami’s Spring Game on Saturday. Ohio State (assistant coach Tim Hinton) stopped by the Mercer County school last week as well and Coldwater Head Coach Chip Otten said Hoying is on the Buckeyes “radar.”
Otten said schools have been impressed with how big Hoying looks in person.
Another school showing extreme interest is Toledo.
Hoying is a first cousin of former Ohio State players Bobby Hoying, Ross Homan and Adam Homan.
Hoying plays in the best small school conference in the state and was named the Midwest Athletic Conference, AP All-Northwest District and AP D-V Ohio Offensive Player of the Year this past season when he led Coldwater to its fifth straight state championship game and second straight D-V title. He was also named first team All-MAC as a DB. On offense, Hoying had 1,858 yards rushing and 33 TDs and 1,903 yards passing and 21 TDs.
“Brody makes it go,” Otten said. “Relatively speaking he’s like a Braxton Miller at Ohio State. He can make plays out of plays that shouldn’t go anywhere.”
