  07/19/21 - Bailey FlintrSr/2022, Toledo, 6-3, 215 (DS#24 P) + More +

  Of all people, the most bankable football player at the University of Toledo isn't the hotshot quarterback, the star running back, or the go-to receiver. No, it's the punter. Bailey Flint may not play what is traditionally seen as a lead role, but don't tell that to his swooning crush of fans. Armed with degrees in theater and media communications, Flint, a senior now pursuing his master's in liberal studies, has cleverly leveraged his singing, acting, and social media chops - along with the terrible but relatable misfortune of having a shortage of shirts to cover his washboard abs - into the largest online following of any Toledo athlete and one of the biggest audiences in college football. Consider: He has 162,700 followers on TikTok, the video-sharing app popular with teens and young adults, which, for perspective, are more fans than the quarterbacks at Ohio State and Michigan have on their many social media platforms between them.

His reach is something else, and it has exploded at seemingly the perfect time. In the free-market new world of college sports, where as of this month students can sign endorsement deals and otherwise cash in on their name, image, and likeness (NIL), Flint is well-positioned to join the party. One consulting service guessed he could earn $30,000 this year. Others suggest he could make even more. There's just one small catch. He can't see a cent of it. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Flint is here on an F-1 student visa that prevents him from accepting outside income while in school. - Toledo Blade

  07/18/21 - Dequan FinnrSo/2024, Toledo, 6-2, 198 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  For the University of Toledo, a trip to Ford Field and the Mid-American Conference championship game hinges on the arm of whoever head coach Jason Candle and quarterbacks coach Robert Weiner tab as the starting quarterback. Dequan Finn, a third-year sophomore, is one of four quarterbacks hoping to take August by storm and lead the Rocket offense onto the field for their first snap against Norfolk State Sept. 4. "I've always appreciated Dequan's work ethic," Candle said. "He has a really good understanding that that position takes more effort. It takes more commitment. It takes more work, so to speak, when the lights aren't on you and you aren't at practice. He's always understood that and always been good at that."

His summer schedule is proof. Finn worked out with teammates at UT, improving his timing with wide receivers, and then drove north to a personal trainer in Detroit. He wants the chemistry to become second nature so crucial third-down plays can be made with ease. "It's been a focused summer," Finn said. "I've worked on what I need to do to become the starter - mechanics, recognizing defenses, making sure I'm better every day, and being mentally and physically prepared." - Toledo Blade

  03/25/21 - Bryant KobackrSr/2022, Toledo, 5-11, 205 (DS#47 RB) + More +

  Thirteen of Toledo's 19 seniors from 2020 are returning for a final season, including all four senior captains (Anderson, Bailey Flint, Bryce Harris, and Samuel Womack) and junior captain Bryant Koback, who will complete his fourth year of college in May and could have moved on. "It never even crossed my mind," Koback said. "I knew I wanted to come back. I just want to play football for as long as it's guaranteed. It's something I love to do and something I want to continue to do. With everything going on, you look at last year and people that left in 2019, and there were question marks [about their future]." Twelve of the 13 are starters on offense, defense, or special teams. All 13 are on the two-deep depth chart. The Rockets return an unheard-of 22 starters - all 11 on offense and defense. Not to be outdone, the kicker, punter, long snapper, and kick and punt returners are also back. - Toledo Blade

  Former Georgia Tech quarterback Tucker Gleason, who placed his name into the transfer portal in mid-December, has announced his transfer to Toledo. Gleason, a freshman, played in two games this season behind starter Jeff Sims. Gleason was the first prospect to announce his commitment to Tech in March 2019, as a high-school junior. Gleason will step into a situation where the starter (Eli Peters, who coincidentally is a graduate of Jeff Sims' alma mater, Sandalwood High in Jacksonville, Fla.) finished his senior season and his backup, Carter Bradley, finished his sophomore season. - Atlanta Journal Constitution

  12/24/20 - Judge CulpepperrJr/2023, Toledo, 6-3, 295 (DS#999 DT) + More +

  Penn State redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Judge Culpepper has entered the transfer portal, according to Rivals. Culpepper, a former three-star recruit in the Class of 2018, according to 247Sports, appeared in all 13 games in 2019 (primarily on special teams) and in all nine games for the Nittany Lions this season. As a reserve, the 6-foot-3, 291-pound Tampa, Florida, native finished the 2020 season with five tackles and 0.5 sacks.

Culpepper arrived at Penn State with fellow defensive tackles junior P.J. Mustipher and redshirt sophomore Aeneas Hawkins. At the position, the Nittany Lions will also lose redshirt senior Antonio Shelton to the transfer portal, and redshirt junior Fred Hansard and Mustipher have yet to make decisions on whether they will enter the NFL Draft or return for another season. - Centre Times
