Rockets on Recruiting Roll

The past couple of days have been quite exciting for the Toledo Rocket football program. After getting the first commitment in the 2010 recruiting class on June 14th, the Rockets quickly added a new commitment in each of the last three days.

The past couple of days have been quite exciting for the Toledo Rocket football program. After getting the first commitment in the 2010 recruiting class on June 14th, the Rockets quickly added a new commitment in each of the last three days.

First up was Taylor Miller of Edgewood High School in Trenton, OH. Taylor committed to Toledo late Saturday night. Miller is a 6-5 and 295 pound offensive lineman that chose to join Toledo's earlier commitment from Josh Hendershot as offensive line commitments for the 2010 class.

Miller chose Toledo over offers from Akron, Ohio, and Western Michigan. He also has received interest from BCS schools such as Ohio State, where he visited for games against Penn State and Michigan last fall, as well as interest from West Virginia, Cincinnati, Illinois, and Georgia Tech.

A few hours later on Sunday morning, another offensive lineman made his commitment to Toledo. This time it was Jeff Myers of Massillon Washington High School. The Massillon, OH native is 6-3 and 293 pounds. He chose Toledo over an offer from Eastern Michigan and interest from Cincinnati. Despite just a couple of offers, Myers has been impressive in camps this offseason. He attended the Scout.com combine in Pittsburg, PA over the spring and was labeled the top offensive line prospect at the combine by several in attendance.

With three commitments in, all on the offensive line, Monday brought another day of exciting news. Monday afternoon Ben Davis High School defensive back Keith Suggs made his commitment to Toledo. The Indianapolis, IN native chose Toledo over an offer from Bowling Green and interest from Akron.

The 5-9 and 180 pound defensive back attended Scout.com's Cincinnati combine back in the summer of 2008. The then 164 pound DB ran a questionable 4.82 forty yard dash, but a year later and 15 pounds bigger, Suggs ran a 4.52 forty yard dash at a camp at Toledo two weeks ago.

Four commitments already in for the 2010 recruiting class and it is still June. The theme for all four commitments has been the same. All four have said Toledo has a great coaching staff. Another big thing that all four have loved are the facilities. The current facilities, as well as the plans for the indoor practice facility that is currently under construction and will be completed this winter.

Toledo has 22 scholarships open for the 2010 recruiting class, so you can expect 18 more commitments to come. Will the next one be tomorrow, or even later tonight? With the roll the coaching staff is on, I would not be surprised.
