Bowling Green saw a coaching change and now is hearing from several recruits about their future. …
Is Ohio Defensive Back Considering Toledo?
He originally committed to Bowling Green last summer, but with the coaching change there he has decided to explore his options.
"Ricky has opened up recruiting and he has visited Toledo," said Ricky's high school coach Tom Grippa. "He will visit BG in January."
Right now Steele has offers from Toledo, Bowling Green, Marshall, Ohio University, and Buffalo. Despite the earlier commitment to Bowling Green, it appears that Ricky is still very much undecided.
"To be honest, I don't believe that Ricky is sure where he wants to go and that is why he is talking to other schools," Grippa told Rocket Digest earlier today.
Toledo got involved in recruiting Ricky when Tim Beckman became the head coach of the Rockets and hired former Bowling Green defensive coordinator Mike Ward. Ward and Matt Campbell (former BGSU offensive line coach now on staff at Toledo) have been instrumental in the Rockets offering several prospects that they were recruiting at Bowling Green, including CB Ricky Steele, DT Chris Jones, QB Patrick Nicely, DE T.J. Fatinikun, WR Perez Ashford, and OL Zac Kerin.
As far as a leader, it appears that two schools are at the top of Ricky's list and the eventual school he signs with will likely be one of those two schools. "I believe that it will come down to BG and Toledo," said Coach Grippa.
