With the spring season concluded, coaches are back on the road recruiting for the class of 2010.
Here is a list of recent scholarship offerees...
quarterback, Easton, Pa.
Offers: Akron, Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Syracuse
Notes: Other teams of interest include Florida State, Penn State, Virginia and Illinois. Former Akron assistant coach
Jim Pry is talking to Smith for Illinois, but the Illini have not made an offer. In an interview with
Scout.com, Smith talked about being impressed by a few of the schools that have offered him scholarships. He did not mention Akron. Scout also calls Smith the No. 2 quarterback prospect in Pennsylvania.
offensive tackle, Youngstown (Cardinal Mooney H.S.)
Offers: Akron and Toledo
Notes: It's hard to be too slow for the offensive line, but Franklin is pushing it. He also has interest in Pitt.
wide receiver, Sylvania, Ohio
Offers: Akron, Kansas, Maryland, Bowling Green and Toledo
Speed: Not listed
Notes: As a junior, he led his team to the Division II state title with 963 receiving yards on 47 receptions.
defensive end, Manheim, Pa.
Offers: Akron, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Stanford, Syracuse, Temple, UCLA, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin
Notes: Royer is a four-star prospect, according to Rivals.com. He is making campus visits to Notre Dame, Michigan State and Illinois in the coming week. Normally, I would say that Akron does not have a chance. And it's probably true here, too. I am wondering, however, why Akron showed up on Royer's list of offers so late in the process.
