6-5 wing player Jake Barnett of Notre Dame Prep School in Fitchburg, MA gave a verbal commitment to the University of Toledo Wednesday morning. Barnett is originally from Milwaukee, WI, before spending a year of prep school in Massachusettes.

The 6-5 forward visited Toledo's campus this past weekend and met with Rocket head coach Gene Cross. Then Wednesday morning he called coach Cross to give him his commitment.

Barnett was fully qualified after high school, but felt he was a Division I caliber player and decided to take the prep route for a year in order to gain some awareness in that quest for a Division I scholarship.

The move paid off for Barnett when he chose Toledo over Boston, New Hampshire, and Liberty.

Jake is considered a very good three point shooter, something that is desperately needed in the Rocket basketball program. He will be considered a true freshman in the fall of 2009.
