Four new recruiting targets

By mrasor Published: May 3, 2009


    Here are four new players to whom Akron has offered a scholarship...
    Eric Williams, wide receiver, Fairless Hills, Penn. Offers: Akron Height: 6-foot-3 Weight: 198 Speed: 4.55 Notes: sees Williams as a player with high upside. He didn't start playing football until his freshman year. He didn't play varsity until his junior year. Williams wants to attend a school with a high graduation rate. He also has interest in Temple, Syracuse and Oregon State.
    Christian Insley, linebacker, Gastonia, N.C. Offers: Akron and Buffalo Height: 6-1 Weight: 220 Speed: 4.7 Notes: It appears Insley would prefer to stay in North Carolina. His other schools of interest include Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State, Wake Forest and South Carolina.
    Maurice Davenport, linebacker/defensive end, Southfield, Mich. Offers: Akron, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Illinois and Wisconsin Height: 6-2 Weight: 235 Speed: Not listed Notes: Davenport missed the first four games of last season with a shoulder injury. He still logged 62 tackles. He seems like a humble kid, who was honored to get any scholarship offers at all. Davenport says he likes all of the schools that have offered.
    Charles Brown, athlete, Washington, D.C. Offers: Akron and Kansas State Height: 5-10 Weight: 198 Speed: 4.56 Notes: Brown calls himself a team leader. He wants a school with good academics where he can study math. Brown played all running back, defense and special teams as a junior. With his height and speed, he looks like a cornerback in college.
