TheRocketNation has learned that three star safety Mark Meyers committed to the University of Toledo today. Meyers, 6-0 and 177 pounds, is a safety at Whitmer High School in Toledo, Ohio. He chose Toledo over offers from most schools in the Mid-American Conference, including Toledo's arch-rival Bowling Green, and a conditional offer from Michigan State.
Meyers was recruited to Toledo to play safety by assistant coaches Paul Nichols and Mike Ward.
With being to Toledo, Mark has been to Toledo's campus several times between camps, watching games, and his official visits. He was in attendance for Toledo's home opener against New Hampshire on September 1st. Then this past weekend he took his official visit to Toledo.
One of the reasons that Meyers is a three star prospect is because of his mixture of speed and hard hitting in the secondary. Over the summer Mark was clocked at 4.46 in the forty yard dash during a camp workout.
Meyers joins Whitmer teammate and offensive lineman Storm Norton as commitments in Toledo's 2012 recruiting class. Norton, 6-8 and 290 pounds, committed to Toledo back in July and has been encouraging Meyers to join him at Toledo ever since.
Meyers and Norton helped Whitmer to the . During the regular season, Meyers recorded 97 tackles, 15 pass break-ups, and one interception. After defeating Canton McKinley and Wadsworth in the state playoffs, Whitmer lost to Cleveland St. Ignatius 17-6 in the state semifinals.
As a junior Meyers recorded 123 tackles and six interceptions.
Meyers is the 18th commitment in Toledo's 2012 football recruiting class and the 2nd commitment in the last three days. Linebacker Chase Murdock committed to Toledo on Monday.
