One Hamilton high school product is already committed to the University of Toledo. The other is…
Commitment #9 (Updated!)
Last week Kenny's coach at Hamilton caught up with Rocket Digest and told us he had a top five of Toledo, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Akron, and Eastern Michigan. Kenny had since pulled the trigger in favor of the Rockets. "Kenny committed this weekend," said Hamilton head football coach Jim Place.
Kenny attributes the UT coaching staff and the fact that Damien McIntosh already committed to Toledo as main contributors in his decision to attend UT.
"Most of the MAC and West Virginia had offered Kenny," said Jim Place. That included Miami University, Akron, Ohio University, and Eastern Michigan who all either already had an official visit from Veal or were supposed to in January. However, he has cancelled any remaining visits and is a solid commitment to Toledo.
When asked about Kenny's abilities, his coach Jim Place said "he's a playmaker on both sides of the ball and he can really run." Kenny has been recruited to Toledo by assistant coach Mark Rhea as an athlete and he could see time at defensive back, wide receiver, running back, and returning kicks.
Veal also believes he can play right away at Toledo, and maybe even start.
Two other Hamilton products are still on the Rockets radar. Marquis Powell and Dimecus Brown are both coming in for official visits on January 19th according to Hamilton Coach Jim Place. Powell is a 6-5, 204 pound wide receiver and Brown is a 6-5, 332 pound offensive lineman. To date neither have official scholarship offers from Toledo.
