Pike also played tight end at Mentor High School, but has been recruited to Toledo as a defensive end. He originally committed to Eastern Michigan back in early November. However, with the coaching change at EMU, Pike decided to explore other options.
Ben is rated two stars by scout.com and he is the 8th commitment to the University of Toledo's 2009 football recruiting class.
