I'm turbo excited about tomorrow.
If you have read this blog more than once, you'd know that.
Heck, I'm even skipping a class to attend the press conference (which is catered).
Take a last look at the players Rivals.com is saying have verbally committed to play at Akron...
- Almondo Sewell, LB, three stars
- Paul Simkovich, OL, three stars
- Casey Estrada, OL, three stars
- Vincent Hill, WR, three stars
- Da'von Moore, DB, three stars
- Matt Rodgers, QB, three stars
- Bryan Williams, DB, three stars
- Dan Marcoux, DT, two stars
- Miguel Graham, DB, two stars
- Gary Pride, ATH, two stars
- Marquinn Davis, DE, two stars
- Sean Fobbs, DB, two stars
- Zac Kasparek, OL, two stars
- Joe Rash, DE, two stars
- Jerome Royal, WR, two stars
- Jalil Carter, WR, two stars
- Don Ronsman, OL, two stars
- Shane Shead, DE, two stars
- Jake Anderson, OL, two stars
- Jarvis Givins, DT, two stars
- Matt Little, LB, two stars
- Aaron Williams, LB, two stars
Here are some names you might see added to that list. Rivals.com says each of them has an Akron scholarship offer sitting on the table...
- Morgan Williams, RB, three stars
- Patrick Hampton, DE, two stars
- Mike Brown, RB, two stars
- Oreoluwa Fatinkun, CB, two stars
- Amir Morris, S, two stars
- Lamar Mason, S, two stars
- Haroon Brown, FB, two stars
- Michael Rainey-Wiles, WR, two stars
- Kevin Nichols, WR, no stars
- Kyle Kozak, DE, no stars
- Lawrence Brewer, DE, no stars
- Chad Woodfork, CB, no stars (JUCO)
Keep in mind that some players on the first list might not sign. In fact, there could be some players on neither list who do. That's why tomorrow is so exciting.
As it stands now, Akron is poised to lead the MAC for the third straight year. Miami, Temple and Toledo might come close.
I'm not the only one on a recruiting binge.
The ABJ's Tom Gaffney wrote an interesting story about Akron's signees who will join the team next season.
I plan to write something similar later this spring.
