Zips add defensive end

By mrasor Published: December 18, 2006


Akron's 13th verbal commitment of the year is Shane Shead, a 6-foot-5 two-star defensive end from Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia. considered Shead a sleeper when he left Plano West High School in Texas. Schools interested in his services included Illinois, Iowa State, Kansas, Texas A&M, Tulane and SMU.

Shead enrolled in prep school to better his grades, much like current phenom David Harvey. gives Shead one star, and does not mention Akron as a potential candidate. Schools on that site include Baylor, N.C. State, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Considering the schools going after Shead, I'd say this is a solid recruit for the Zips.
