Akron's coaching staff notched the biggest recruit in program history with 7-footer Zeke Marshall choosing the Zips over Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, Virginia, Xavier, Duquesne and George Mason.
The Scout.com story says that Marshall -- the nation's No. 11 center -- fell in love with Akron's coaching staff and campus.
Marshall will be the interior defensive presence that Akron lost with the departure of Romeo Travis. Eventually, he could be dominant on offense, as well. Marshall is the kind of talent that can elevate a program into an elite mid-major status.
