That's OK, Cinci has a nice little program as well.

OH! And by the way, KICK THE HELL OUT OF MICHIGAN THIS YEAR! For all us little programs...we already knocked 'em out when we had our chance!

Fickell almost got it too.

Woodside was pretty good too - and he'll be back whereas I believe Whiteside was a one and done.

He seems to be hanging on much longer than he deserves to.

Miami Heat fans will be glad to get Whiteside back for the upcoming season.

Haslem for Whiteside. It was a trade that helped both teams.

RE: 2018 Official Football Recruiting Thread
To date & according to 247sports, Toledo has 7 verbal commits:
  • 4 defensive players
  • 3 offensive players
  • 3 LBs
  • 2 OL
  • 1 QB
  • 1 DE
  • Only 2 come from Ohio
  • 58th national ranking
  • 2nd in the MAC

Any positions you'd like to see get some attention? June and July are huge months for commitments.

Maurice White has been under-recruited. He is a nice addition for UT. UT's 1st recruit out of MLK. This also opens an in for UT. MLK and Cass are the 2 biggies in Detroit publics.

Go Rockets!

Cass Tech plays in Division I, while King plays Division II but they always seem to meet in the Detroit PSL Finals at Ford Field.

White is interesting in that he has not developed upper body strength yet despite his size. UT will place him on a massive program to increase his strength while maintaining his foot speed.

Interesting article on White per below link

Interesting that Dyontae Johnson received an Iowa State offer but chose Toledo instead. If Campbell wants to be competitive in his conference, he needs to win some recruiting battles v Michigan and Ohio State, not versus MAC teams.

And another...the 2nd decommit of the 2018 class is WR Jordan Dillard: https://twitter.com/Dillard_152/status/8...4284937216

That's two WR decommits in the past month.

RE: 2018 Official Football Recruiting Thread
Guys...I am not at all concerned about the 2 WR de-commits since even better receivers are waiting to be signed but I AM super excited about Wilkinson. IMHO he is the best QB signing in 10 years. This kid has a tremendous arm and game savvy. He was UT's top QB target for 2018. This is a significant verbal for UT. He was going to pledge a week ago but still pulled the trigger early for UT. He is obviously a smart kid as demonstrated by both his grades and field presence. Cross is one of the best commits in years. All fans on this site should watch his HUDL film as it is amazing. He has tremendous long distance accuracy, nice release, size, mobility, etc.

Great news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Rockets!

watch and ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!

dang, he's not only a great thrower with very good accuracy, but he has some receivers that look like they could be very good in the MAC. This is only off his junior year performances.

Anybody have his stats? He completed 100% of his throws in that video... 03-wink

That's passing under pressure! Probably hit 120% on ESPN3.

He is coming off a campaign where he compiled 2,249 yards through the air with a 63-percent completion percentage.

looks like a star in waiting. hope we can hold the commit. will get some bigger offers if he stays healthy. i always watch the qb recruit's ball speed, zip, throwing motion, looking for how natural and smooth it is is to throw a real good ball. this kid has that. he also is real decisive and intelligent with his feet. pretty fast but uses it to avoid the rush to throw on the run or pick up yards and get out of bounds. not a guy who will risk injury to prove his toughness in the middle of the field, which for a qb is usually a good thing.
