Danny Kolp Offered by Toledo, Where Mother Received Masters Degree

Danny Kolp, a 2018 small forward, has received another offer from Toledo, adding to his Central Michigan offer.

Danny Kolp of Petoskey, Michigan has received an offer from the University of Toledo, where his mother received her Masters degree. Despite the connection, Kolp says he still doesn't know too much about the school and will look to learn more about the Rockets.

"My mom went to Toledo for her Masters and I enjoy the campus setup," Kolp stated, "We also have family that lives close (to campus)."

Kolp, a 2018 small forward who measures six-foot, eight-inches, is a versatile player who has also received an offer from Central Michigan as well as extreme interest from Iowa and Oakland as well.

"I'm six-eight," Kolp stated on his ability, "And I can play a three or four, I can play wherever you need me to play and I rely on my defense to make an impact on the game."

The Michigan native plays travel basketball for the Michigan Mustangs and has worked hard to receive the attention for collegiate programs. However, in May, Kolp suffered an injury which required knee surgery.

"I tore my medial patellar ligament," Kolp said, "It happened about a month ago playing basketball. Hopefully I'm back not too far into the high school season. I should be up on my feet and comfortable by August," he added.

Kolp, who will factor academics into his decision, says he is looking to go into science, primarily biochemical engineering. As for a leader in his recruitment, there really isn't one.

"I love both Toledo and Central Michigan for different reasons."

As for what those reasons are, "Quite honestly, I don't have enough information to tell you the best reasons I enjoy Toledo, I only visited it with family and haven't even been on a visit there yet."

Kolp says he hopes to visit Toledo as soon as he is healed up, around August he told Toledo Scout. It looks as if the Toledo coaching staff will factor into the future decision of the wing as well.

"I think Coach Kowalczyk is a great guy, I'm super excited to learn more about him and the staff as well," he added.
