It appears as though Lakewood RB/WR Bernard Reedy will be heading to Toledo at just the right time. Reedy committed to the Rockets the very day Rivals.com named Toledo as one of its top-five recruiting surprises for 2010.
Here’s what the site had to say:
The MAC never grabs national headlines unless it beats a Big Ten team and everybody wants to call it an upset. However, MAC programs have always recruited better than many people give them credit for and this season the most under-appreciated MAC recruiting list belongs to Toledo. The Rockets has 2009 four-star receiver James Green enrolled in classes this semester. Cleveland Glenville's James Gordon missed most of this season with an ACL injury, but could be a steal if he makes a full recovery. Toledo has a trio of mid-three star prospects in David Fluellen, Ross Madison and Quintin Robinson. Another three-star commitment, Elijah Jones, won the defensive line MVP at the 2009 Illinois NIKE camp over players such as five-star prospect William Gholston and top Illinois prospect Bruce Gaston Jr.
By the way, this was written before word came that Reedy had pledged to the Rockets – and he might arguably be that program’s top recruit.
