Jacobs Excited to be a Rocket

Algonquin Jacobs (Ill.) defensive end Adam Kulon talks about his decision to attend Toledo.

Adam Kulon said he was beyond excited to commit to Toledo on Wednesday, and the Rockets should be just as happy to have the hard hitting 6'5 defensive end.

"I thought that at Toledo, I had the better connection with the coaches. I went down for a visit this past Saturday and I loved it, my parents loved it, my brother really liked it and I like the way program's going. The next few years, I think they'll be competing for MAC Championships constantly. Their schedule has national TV games on it; their opening game is in Arizona and it was just the right fit for me and my family."

Another big reason for Kulon's decision was the position coach he'll have at Toledo.

"The coach I talked to most was Eli Rasheed, the defensive line coach. I felt a good connection with him as soon as I met him. He was the first guy I talked to. My first visit was through him and I felt like he can help me become a better football player and felt he was the best D-Line coach I was talking to."

And there will be an opportunity on that defensive line.

"They said I will defintely get a chance. I don't know, but I think they're graduating a few guys and next year also. They told me I'd get a chance to compete for the position to play, but if not, I can redshirt and have that extra year of eligibility."
