Detroit Cass Tech sophomore running back Gary Hosey showcased his abilities at the Adidas Invitational last weekend in Grand Rapids, Mich.

At 6-foot, 230-pounds, Hosey said the hard work he had been putting in this winter has been paying off.

"I think I did pretty good," he told GoBlueWolverine. "I was quicker. I was faster. I've been working on it a lot this off-season and it just paid off today."

Recently, Hosey was in Ann Arbor to check in on Michigan spring football practice and came away impressed.

"It was pretty good," he said on his visit. "I talked to coach (Chris Singletary). He said they're going to start recruiting me harder. So, that's good… I couldn't interact with any players, because it was their first day of practice they were pretty busy. But I just like the way the practice was ran, it was organized real, it was real fast paced."

Hosey noted he doesn't have any planned visits back to Michigan at the moment. However, he said the Wolverines' switch to a more pro-style run oriented offense has caught his attention.

"So that is great to hear that and it's great their going back to a pro-style offense, cause that would be really good. I like pro-style offenses," said the three-star prospect.

Currently, Hosey has offers from Bowling Green, Ball State and Eastern Michigan. He is also getting considerable interest from Georgia Tech, Ohio State, Wisconsin, NC State, Iowa and Maryland.

"I think I am going to visit Maryland in about two weeks," Hosey said on his upcoming visit schedule. "I am going to Ohio State April 6th. And I'll be going to Georgia Tech at the end of May. I visited Michigan State recently, and they picked up recruitment a lot, too."

As far as what Hosey is looking for in program, it's just a matter of comfort, he said.

"Being comfortable where I am," he explained. "And the coaching staff, see how they interact with their players. How they are with me, cause it's important to have a relationship with the coach you're going to be with your time there. And just the environment overall."

Is there a school that is Hosey's early leader or does he have a top-five?

"I think it's too early for a top-five," he said. "I like every school that I've been to so far. So I just want to keep visiting schools."

With no leader at the moment, Hosey said a decision won't be anytime soon.

"I'm not sure when I want to make that decision yet," Hosey said. "But I'm sure I'll find out in the summer time when I'm going to make my decision. But I plan on making some visits too. I'm in no rush."

In the meantime, Hosey said he's going to continue training and hitting up the camp circuit this spring.

"Just working hard in the weight room. Next month, I'll be at the Rivals camp and I plan on being at the Nike Football Training Camp. I'm not sure if I'll be going to the one in Columbus or Chicago yet."
