Two new commitments

By mrasor Published: January 22, 2008

Since I posted this morning, two more players have committed to Akron.
One is Troy Gilmer, who I mentioned in the post immediately below.

    The other is...
    Maurice Harvey, safety, Reedley C.C. (Calif.) Offers: Akron and Nebraska Height: 6-foot-3 Weight: 195 Speed: Not listed Notes: gives Harvey three stars. This quote from a Rivals story fascinated me: "Harvey said that Cal-Berkeley, Kansas State, and Oregon are 'about it' in paying attention to him other than the Huskers." Other schools of interest included Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Nevada, South Florida, Syracuse, West Virginia, California, Clemson and Florida State.

Akron has 22 verbal commitments so far, with three scholarships left to give out. The targeted positions include a high school receiver and another cornerback. Harvey is one of the highlights in this class, according to a source with the team.
Here is a list combined from,, and's Captain Kangaroo.
Adam Bice, OL Marvase Byrd, DB Andrew Colosimo, OL/TE Kevin Funches, DB Ryan Gardner, WR Troy Gilmer, RB James Harvey, DE Maurice Harvey, DB Jordan Miller, QB Jared Province, DB Josh Richmond, DB Nate Schuler, LB Norman Shuford, RB Mitch Straight, OL Brian Wagner, LB Manley Waller, ATH
