Another prospect finally made his decision to play for Chris Chreighton and the Eagles. Brody Hoying is going to bring his small-town work ethic to Ypsilanti in 2015.
Its official.. Future Eastern Michigan eagle!!— Brody Hoying (@15bhoying) July 26, 2014
An unranked prospect by 247sports, Rivals and Scout profiles, listed as a dual-threat quarterback by those outlets, but he'll be playing safety at the college level. He's not a very big athlete, listed at 5-foot-11 and only touching 185 pounds on the scale. Size might be an issue here, but Hoying has had a lot of success in his three years of high school football, winning back-to-back state championships for Coldwater High School.
"I can't explain how excited and relieved I am to finally get this over with," Hoying told Hustle Belt. "Definitely satisfied with my decision, I think I'm going to love it here."
The coaching staff was a huge reason for Hoying's decision to go to Eastern Michigan, saying that they are "the best of them all."
"You can tell the passion and intensity [Creighton] has for the game of football," Hoying continued, "And the passion he has for you to play football for him just gives you goosebumps when you're talking to him."
Being recruited by EMU back in April, they were the only school to offer him a scholarship.
'The Factory' and its visual representation of having to work hard really hit home for Brody.
"Where I come from it's a small town football-oriented area and everyone around here is blue-collar and hard working just like it is up there," Brody said. "I love it. I was up there on Friday at camp and I saw it and I think it looks sweet. There's the background behind it with the blue collar and everything. I think it looks sweet"
