The University of Toledo football program received their first commitment for the 2010 recruiting class Friday night when Newark Catholic offensive lineman Josh Hendershot gave the Rockets his commitment.

"I committed to Toledo on Friday night, after their camp I attended," Hendershot recently told Rocket Digest. He added, Coach Golesh had been recruiting me like crazy right from the time I received the offer, until I committed on Friday."

Josh chose Toledo over offers from Indiana, Bowling Green, Air Force, Eastern Michigan, and Kent State.

"I chose Toledo for a lot of reasons," Hendershot told Rocket Digest. "I really get along great with the coaching staf, especially Coach Campbell. They act like a family. They're upgrading all of their facilities, and even the school is upgrading a lot of their classroom buildings. And I love the school and city. Toledo is a great city with a great University that has a lot of tradition."

Josh also discussed the changes going on with the Rocket football program. "A lot of people don't realize this, because Toledo has been in a slump the last few years, I believe that this new coaching staff and the players will lead Toledo back to the top, and I truly want to be part of that."

Hendershot has been recruited to Toledo as either an offensive guard or center, but he pointed out that he is ready to move to whatever position he needs to when he gets to Toledo.

He currently wears jersey number 70 for Newark Catholic in Newark, OH. His team went 6-4 last season. Josh is currently 6-4 and 255 pounds, and runs a 4.9 forty yard dash. He holds a 3.2 GPA.
