Toledo lands two in-state players

Toledo picked up two commitments over the weekend, according to the Toledo Blade.

6-foot-8 power forward Zach Garber (Vanlue, Ohio/Vanlue) and 6-foot-4 shooting guard Jordan Lauf (Napoleon, Ohio/Napoleon) - both teammates in the All Ohio Red AAU program - committed to the Rockets.

"It just felt right," Garber told the paper. "The coaches have always treated me like a priority. Me and Jordan, they always talked to us in a group. They said how they need to get excitement back up in the basketball program and get back to the winning ways. They made us feel most wanted there."

The two prospects, who both held offers from Akron, Bowling Green and Ohio, are the first two recruits for the Rockets in 2013.
