The Zips wasted no time wooing next year's targets. Three are among Rivals.com's top 100 in the nation.
Here are players to whom Akron has offered a scholarship for 2009...

Offers: Akron, Boston College, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia Height: 6-foot-0 Weight: 179 Speed: 4.75 Notes: Scout.com gives Brown three stars.
