Toledo lands Cass Tech linebacker

Class of 2014 linebacker William White (Detroit/Cass Tech) committed Thursday to sign with the Toledo Rockets, multiple sources report.

The 6-foot, 220-pound prospect selected Toledo over scholarship offers from BCS Conference programs such as Cincinnati and Indiana. Big Ten schools Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin showed some interest.

White was extremely productive last fall, registering 142 total tackles and 12 sacks.

He is Toledo's first pledge for 2014.
