Rocket Nation weren't the only ones at the Glass Bowl on Saturday cheering on Toledo to a victory over New Hampshire. Many solid recruits were there, watching alongside the fans. One of those prospects was Toledo St. John's Jesuit offensive lineman Sean Rattay.
"The visit went real well. They just finished the new Larimer Center, which is really nice. The new weight room and locker room really stood out to me. UT is a top notch program," the 6-foot 2-inch, and 280 pound junior stated to Hustle Belt.
"I thought the game went good. I've grown up in Toledo so it's always good to go back to the Glass Bowl. When I think of UT football, what comes to mind is an excellent program that has a very energetic coaching staff. They're very competitive too when they play the best of the best," he added on his time at UT.
Rattay didn't just have the chance to check out the game and brand new renovations made on the Toledo campus, he also had plenty of time to speak with the Rocket coaching staff.
"I had a chance to talk with most of the coaches before the game," Rattay said. "They asked how I was doing, and how my team was looking. They also asked how I did on Friday. The coaching staff just makes me feel at home."
Toledo is currently the only scholarship offer Rattay holds, but that should soon change. Today was the first day of the Evaluation Period, which gives college coaches not just a chance to go out and watch prospects in action on Friday nights, it also gives them the opportunity to communicate more freely with class of 2016 recruits.
So far Rattay has had his fair share of college coaches getting in contact. Florida State, Duke, Michigan State, Florida International, and Mid-American Conference programs Akron, Bowling Green, Ball State, and Eastern Michigan have all reached out to him.
His Toledo visit isn't the last one in his plans, as Rattay would like to make stops on the campuses of Duke, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan State, and Purdue in the coming months, but doesn't have anything set in stone as of yet.
