Akron targets five more

By mrasor Published: May 23, 2008


    More scholarship offers, per
    Malik Generett, wide receiver, York, Pa. Offers: Akron Height: 6-foot-5 Weight: 205 Speed: 4.5 Notes: Generett caught only 31 passes for four touchdowns as a junior. If Generett is that big and that fast, and Akron is his only offer, he must have tennis rackets for hands.
    Derrell Person, wide receiver, Washington D.C. Offers: Akron, Virginia, Maryland and Illinois Height: 6-2 Weight: 220 Speed: Not listed Notes: Person likes Illinois because Ron Zook has recruited the D.C. area heavily in the past.
    Jordan Houser, cornerback, Fairborn, Ohio Offers: Akron and Eastern Michigan Height: 5-11 Weight: 175 Speed: 4.5 Notes: Houser is getting interest from BCS schools, but his grades might be an issue.
    Lorne Goree, linebacker, Springdale, Md. Offers: Akron, Syracuse, Illinois and Maryland Height: 6-2 Weight: 220 Speed: 4.65 Notes: Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech top Goree's list because he wants to live away from home, but not too far.
    Xavier Hughes, safety, Germantown, Md. Offers: Akron, West Virginia and Buffalo Height: 6-1 Weight: 165 Speed: 4.6 Notes: Hughes is a big hitter. He prefers to go to Ohio State, but the Buckeyes have not offered a scholarship.
