Toledo Lands Commitment From Local Star LB

Matt Campbell and Co. just got a big win on the recruiting trail with the commitment from 2015 Toledo Central Catholic linebacker Chris Green. Green, a consensus 3-star interior linebacker announced his commitment to his hometown Rockets Sunday evening:

Listed at 6-foot, 220 pounds, Green is a huge addition for the Rockets. He is regarded as a Top 40 prospect in the nation at his position, and according to 247Sports Composite, he's the 48th best prospect in the state of Ohio.

Toledo managed to win Green's commitment over several "power conference" programs. Boston College, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Penn State, Syracuse and West Virginia are among the schools that have offered Green.

Green gives Toledo 21 commitments so far for a class that is arguably the best in the MAC.

OT Jordan Fair Commits To The Rockets

Last month, the Rockets received their sixth verbal commitment of their 2015 recruiting class from offensive tackle, Jordan Fair. Making sure that their quarterback is well protected is something that the Rockets have put a lot of focus in on in this recruiting class as they have received multiple verbal commitments from offensive linemen already.

Jordan Fair,a 2-star recruit according to Rivals.com, stands at 6-foot-5 and weighs 276 pounds. Fair, who attended Mason High School, was a highly sought after recruit among MAC schools as he chose Toledo over offers from Akron, Miami, and Western Michigan. Fair also held an offer from Sun-Belt member, Georgia State.

Over the past month, Coach Campbell and his staff have been very busy on the recruiting trail and this gritty offensive linemen from Mason, Ohio looks to be a perfect fit for the Rockets.

Strapped In: OL Bryce Harris Choses Toledo

Earlier this week 2015 Firestone (Akron, Ohio) lineman Bryce Harris told us he was strongly considering several MAC schools, including Toledo. Friday night, after attending a camp at the Rockets' indoor practice facility, Harris orally committed to Toledo.

As we noted before, Harris is a strong lineman, who currently plays both ways. he can bench more than 400 pounds, and while currently unranked by anyone, has solid upside and screams "sleeper prospect".

He chose Toledo over offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, EMU, Kent St, Western Michigan and UTEP, and was receiving interest from a few Power 5 schools, including Syracuse.

Check out our full writeup on Harris, including his highlights, here.

A Quick Look At WR/DB Commit Josh Teachey

Josh Teachey of McDonough, Maryland is the first out of state player to verbally commit to the Toledo Rockets' class of 2015. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound wide receiver/defensive back gave his commitment to the Rockets on June 7, 2014.

Teachey chose the Rockets, his only offer, forgoing playing out the interest  he was getting from Rutgers, Michigan State, Maryland, and North Carolina amongst others.

Teachey is explosive, quick off the line, changes direction well, and possesses strong hands. His ball skills matched with his superb route running make him an instant watch list player. He can line up in the slot, out of the backfield, and likely could compete as a kick and punt returner as well.

Teachey will need to make up for his lack of size. A two-way player in high school, Teachey has excellent ball skills, fighting for possession at the ball's highest point.

Teachey reminds me a lot of Bernard Reedy who recently graduated. If Teachey can make the same impact Reedy made on special teams and in the receiving game the Rockets will not only have an impact player, but also a differenc-maker on gameday.


A Quick Look At Toledo Commit Kevin Banks

Defensive back Kevin Banks, from Toledo, Ohio, is a 6-foot-1 185 pound speedster who has the ability to play multiple positions on the field.

Bank became the seventh player to commit to the Toledo Rockets on May 24, 2014, opting to go with his hometown team. A relatively unknown prospect prior to committing, Banks is unranked by the major scouting services, but is definitely a unique talent, and possibly a steal for the Rockets.

Recruiting services have him listed as a safety, but in high school Banks has played running back, linebacker, the slot and lines up in the defensive backfield.

Banks is sneaky fast, hits hard, and finishes up until the whistle blows on every play. He plays with a linebacker's mentality, which could make him a good hard-hitting free safety at the college level.


A Quick Look At QB Commit Mitchell Guadagni

Quarterback Mitchell Guadagni, from Hudson, Ohio is the sixth commitment of the Toledo Rockets 2015 class, having verbally committed on May 6, 2014.

It was no shock to see the Rockets pursue a quarterback after losing Terrance Owens to graduation this offseason.

Guadagni also had offers from Buffalo, Kent State, and Western Michigan before ultimately deciding on the Rockets.

A 6-foot-2, 175-pound pro style quarterback, Guadagni chose to stay close to home. He will have plenty of time to develop learning behind Philip Ely who came to the Rockets as a transfer from Alabama last season.

Rated a 2 star quarterback by 247Sports, he will be a welcomed piece. As a junior Guadagni showed off his wheels when he posted 913 rushing yards and seven touchdown runs while tossing the ball for 2,029 yards and 22 touchdowns and led his high school team to a 10-2 record.

Check out his Hudl highlights and see why the Rockets have reason to be excited.


A Quick Look At Toledo Commit OLB Tyler Taafe

2015 outside linebacker prospect Tyler Taafe from Hubbard, Ohio became Toledo's first commitment of the 2015 class way back in early April. The outside linebacker has a solid skill set that should allow him to contribute right away.

Taafe chose Toledo almost immediately after the Rockets gave him his first scholarship offer. Taafe has also visited Pittsburgh.

The 6foot-2 213 pound outside linebacker has great size and strength to go with his quickness. His instincts and tackling score extremely high, while his ability to makes big plays in space also stands out.

Rated a 2 star outside linebacker by 247Sports, Taafe is considered a Top-70 prospect in the state of Ohio. He should bring toughness as well as great athleticism to the Rockets linebacking corps in years to come. He is considered an excellent (an excellent what?)

Taafe has the agility, skillset, focus, and drive to be a successful Rocket and MAC player. With continued development, and grooming at the next level Taafe should be an impact linebacker for the Rockets.
