One California high school standout already knows a lot about the upcoming recruiting process, he learned a lot from when his older brother was highly recruited.

Coltin Gerhart, the younger brother of former Stanford standout and current Minnesota Viking Toby Gerhart, admits he learned a lot from his big brother and is definitely listening to his advice.

"Toby tells me to enjoy it and have fun while you still can," Gerhart told BuffPlayBook.com. "He wants me to get the best out of the process, I have learned a lot from him."

The younger Gerhart plays quarterback for his Norco HS team and has already proved that he can throw and run.

Gerhart, a 6-foot-0 and a half, 214-pound athlete, passed for over 1,700 yards and rushed for over 1,100 yards as a junior.

He currently holds offers from Duke, Iowa State, Arizona State and holds a baseball scholarship offer from Stanford.

Will Gerhart pursue football or baseball at the next level?

"I'm not sure right now," Gerhart said. "We will see, I'm keeping my options open at this point."

The younger Gerhart isn't lacking confidence either.

When asked who would win a foot race between the two brothers, Coltin responded with a laugh.

"I think it would be a close one," Gerhart said. "My coaches tell me I should switch to running back, the position Toby played. I do think I'm more athletic than my brother."

Gerhart is hearing from the University of Colorado and is expecting CU Coach to come by his high school this spring.

"They are telling me that they are going to come see me this spring," Gerhart said. "I have interest in Colorado, I have a former teammate that is playing there. He is telling me that the new coaching staff is great."

Gerhart has two brothers that play football, his other brother Garth was a three year starter for Arizona State.

"I'm hearing it from everyone," Gerhart laughed. "Garth wants me to go to ASU, other members of my family want me to go to Stanford. All of them have made it clear that they want me to make the right choice for me."
