Akron lost a duel with Connecticut for the commitment of Lehighton, Pa., running back Robbie Frey.
Frey is a three-star athlete, according to Scout.com. Rivals.com gives him two stars.
My Cincinnati bureau, however, informed me that Akron has offered a scholarship to offensive lineman Michael Chacksfield from Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. Scout.com gives him two stars. Rivals.com agrees, but says his stock could rise.
The ABJ's David Lee Morganprovided five reasons why the Zips will win the MAC. This is the most bizarre story I have read in a long time. It talks about Cory Snyder, Joe Carter, Larry Fitzgerald and Marshall University. Also, maybe I missed something being in Indianapolis all summer, but as far as I have heard, J.D. Brookhart hasn't signed an extension.
