Akron has one commitment so far: quarterback Jordan Miller.
The Zips are about in the same position as this time last year, when the team only had one verbal commitment -- wide receiver Jerome Royal.

Two new offers
Norman Shuford, all-purpose back, Farmington Hills, Mich. Offers: Akron, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan Height: 5-foot-9 Weight: 170 Speed: 4.4 Notes: Rivals actually lists Shuford as an inch shorter. That doesn't really matter. This isn't a guy who will truck anyone over. Likelihood: Farmington Hills is only 35 minutes from Ypsilanti, where Eastern Michigan is located. On the other hand, it's even closer to where Detroit, where Akron has played twice at Ford Field about 20 months ago.
Supo Sanni, wide receiver, Homewood, Ill. Offers: Akron, Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Bowling Green and Western Michigan Height: 6-foot-3 Weight: 197 Speed: 4.6 Notes: Rivals gives Sanni three stars and calls him the 79th best receiver in the nation. Scout.com lists him as the No. 24 safety in the nation. Sanni also plays basketball, and he likes that Iowa State would allow him to play two sports. Likelihood: Sanni likes Akron as his No. 5 school. The other four, in order, are Iowa State, Iowa, Michigan State and Illinois.
