The two have kept in close touch despite the distance.

"He sends me different videos of him playing basketball and will ask, 'Hey, what do I need to work on?' and I'll give him advice," Adam told ABC News.

The brothers were apart for the holidays because flights were too expensive. So for spring break, Adam bought a ticket and surprised Aaron.
