Recruiting moves along for Toth

It's been a while since we've been able to catch up with Grand Rapids C Nick Toth (6-4, 295) and he's had a busy past couple months. Things are just now starting to pick up as far as recruiting is concerned and he talked with us about his season and what schools have been showing him the most interest now that his season is over.

"We didn't really have the best season, but I thought I played pretty well individually," Toth told this past weekend. "I struggled with some injuries though, but it's football so you have to play through them. I had a concussion in game one and then I strained my achilles and then I tore a tendon in my right elbow so I had to miss a whole game with that one.

"I still came back faster than they expected and I finished out the year strong and I'm 100-percent healthy now so I'll be fine as far as injuries are concerned. They were the first injuries of my football career, so I'll just chalk it up to bad luck I guess."

Toth is a physical lineman who likes to maul his opponents and he said he's being recruited as both a center or a guard.

"Wherever a team wants and needs me to play, I'm pretty much open to it," Toth said with a chuckle. "I like playing center because I have control of things and can make the calls, but guard is cool too because you can pull more and really get to that second level."

On the recruiting front, Toth is just now getting his tape out to schools and one in particular has stepped up the attention.

"Toledo has been showing the most interest and I think they are pretty serious about me," Toth said. "I just got my film out to them pretty recently and they said they really liked it and they want to bring me out for a visit soon.

"Western Michigan, Central Florida, Memphis, Arizona and Minnesota are the other schools contacting me the most and they all said they like the way I play the game.

"I'd say recruiting is going pretty well, but I'm hoping to start getting these tapes out and then contacting the schools and seeing how interested they are. I'd like to take visits every weekend in January so I can make a good decision."

Wherever Toth ends up he'll graduate in May with his AA degree and he'll have three years to play two.
