At least Akron got another verbal commitment from a coveted player. Sean Hakes will play for the Zips next season if he's not redshirted. Bowling Green was considered the favorite to land Hakes until the Texas quarterback visited campus after the MAC Championship. "I was really blown away," he told Gary Estwick of the ABJ.
ESPN Insider calls him a raw, yet athletic, quarterback. He is accurate on short passes. His athleticism allows him to scramble well. The Zips beat out Colorado State and Mississippi, as well as BG, to sign Hakes, who is Akron's third verbal commitment this year.
I just don't know about that wrist move he's doing in this photo. Just kidding.
