Toledo continues to target Florida Product, Darius Corbett

It's no secret that the Toledo Rockets love Florida wide receivers. Therefore, it's no surprise to see Jason Candle and the Rockets targeting Darius Corbett.

Darius Corbett exploded on the recruiting scene early back in May of 2015 when he began adding his first offers and major interest. Recently, schools have begun to target Corbett harder than ever, including the Toledo Rockets. Toledo, who offered Corbett back in May, loves what Corbett can provide to their fast-pace offense.

"Coach Blackwell told me that he loves what I can do with the ball," Corbett said about the Rocket recruiting effort, "He loves how I can get in and out of my routes."

The Tampa (Florida) Catholic High School product says he likes to compare himself to Larry Fitzgerald, which makes sense. The six-foot, one-inch, 165-pounder has made scouts and other coaches 'OOO' and 'Ahh' at a lot of his catches at recent camps. Because of this, Corbett has really heated up, recently adding offers from Southern MississippiWestern Kentucky and Kent State. Despite those offers, Corbett says he has a few other schools that are catching his eye.

"Right now, my top five is Bowling GreenBuffalo, Connecticut, Sanford and Toledo, in no order," Corbett told us.

"The reason I like Toledo is because I feel like it could be a good fit for me and I feel llike it could help me better my game," he added.

Corbett, who knows current Rocket wide out, Diontae Johnson of Lennard High School, a nearby high school, says he has heard several good things about the university, "I'm hearing that Toledo is a great school."

Corbett says he hopes to visit Northwest Ohio sometime this summer but hasn't found an exact date yet. Aside from the Rockets, the 2017 wide out says he's also hearing from Illinois and while an offer from the Illini would be interesting, the Rockets are in a prime position to land Corbett's commitment.

The playmaking wide receiver caught 36 passes for 1,035 yards in 2015 as a junior and says he will work hard no matter where he commits. As for a commitment date, Corbett says he isn't quite sure when it'll come.
