Brookhart wants to narrow QB field

By mrasor Published: July 26, 2007

By the end of the first week of camp, Akron's quarterback situation should be a bit clearer.
The team will narrow the three-candidate race to two by then, J.D. Brookhart said during yesterday's MAC Media Day.
David Lee Morgan's ABJ story also confirms that David Harvey has left the team due to academic reasons.
I found his quote to be somewhat interesting: "It's disappointing not having David, but we all have requirements to take care of,'' Brookhart said. "Unfortunately, that's the way it is, and we're moving on."
It mirrors what he said during spring practice, except I believe he used the word "obligations," rather than "requirements." At the time, it sounded a lot like he was helping a sick family member or something nobler than flunking out.
I will say it again -- and this prediction rests on no inside information -- I don't think we've seen the last of David Harvey.

    A new scholarship offer:
    Manley Waller, cornerback, Decatur, Ga. Offers: Akron, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Ohio and Alabama-Birmingham Height: 5-foot-8 Weight: 160 Speed: 4.46 Notes: Waller is the son of former Olympic gold medalist sprinter Gwen Torrence. says he is a physical player, despite his size. Waller could be considered a kick returner or wide receiver at the next level as well. Likelihood: With four of the top MAC teams in the mix, Waller would be a great commitment. Not only are you getting a guy you want, but your on-field competition loses a player they want. He also has interest in Auburn and Ohio State. (In a related note, I have interest in Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie.)
