Lakewood RB Bernard Reedy, the Times’ Pinellas County Offensive Player of the Year, has committed to Toledo.

Reedy chose the Rockets over Western Kentucky, which he visited this weekend. He also received interest from South Florida, but the Bulls never offered a scholarship.

Additionally, he considered Indiana, Iowa State, Mississippi State and Troy.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Reedy did it all for the Spartans in 2010, playing everything from RB and WR to DB and QB. He also returned kicks.

RocketsArguably the county’s most versatile offensive weapon, Reedy gained 1,211 yards rushing, 833 receiving and 1,031 on returns while accounting for 36 touchdowns (19 rushing, seven receiving, 10 on returns).

Against county-power Countryside, Reedy rushed for 106 yards, had 69 receiving yards and produced a 96-yard kickoff return for a score to help hand the Cougars their only regular-season loss.

Ironically, Reedy announced his pledge to Toledo via text Sunday while on his WKU official.

"I'm going to Toledo," Reedy wrote.

Reedy figures to be arguably Toledo’s biggest get of this recruiting cycle. The Rockets, who compete in the Mid-American Conference, were 5-7 in 2009.
