2015 Toledo Football Recruiting: WR Danzel McKinley-Lewis Commits To Rockets

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Rockets may have found a future deep ball threat in this Pittsburgh prospect.

While Toledo's 2015 recruiting class has been off to an incredibly successful start, skill position players have been hard to come by. The Rockets had a commitment from a 2015 receiver earlier this year (Tre Tipton) before he flipped to Pitt.

But the Rockets' 14th commitment to the class of 2015 gives them a skill position again. Wide receiver Danzel McKinley-Lewis committed to the rockets on June 24, choosing Toledo over offers from Ohio, albany and Duquesne.

The 5-foot-11 175 pound receiver hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he currently plays both ways for Seton LaSalle High School. McKinley-Lewis is an athletic get for the Rockets. He's quick, with a great first step and an impressive stride.

He has good field vision, and can work his way out of tight jams by finding gaps in the secondary and working his way through them using a whole toolbag of moves. In Toledo's offense he could take on a role similar to that of Bernard Reedy, as a kick returner and slot, where his agility would make it hard for linebackers to stick to him.

McKinley-Lewis is the type of player who will probably get more looks before signing day, especially if he has a standout senior season. But he fits the Rockets' offense so well it may be the best landing spot for him in terms of ability to produce and make an impact early.
