One day after getting back home from an official visit to the University of Toledo, Waco, Texas offensive line prospect Christian Beard decided to end the drama and commit to Toledo.
Beard, 6-4 and 270 pounds, chose Toledo over offers from Central Arkansas, UL Monroe, Montana State, Nevada, New Mexico State, North Texas, Sam Houston State and SMU. He was recruited to Toledo by assistant coach Tom Manning.
