Zips add walk-on from Florida

Akron will add a 6-foot-4 walk-on guard from Florida.
Kyle Peterson averaged 18.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.3 steals per game at Community School in Naples, Fla.
After the fiascos with Rydell Brooks and Andrew Moss, Zips fans will be refreshed to hear Peterson has a 3.8 GPA and his high school retired his jersey, which tends to indicate high character.
Keith Dambrot praised Peterson's high basketball IQ. Akron's Honors College has already accepted Peterson. (Good luck with your final Honors project, buddy.)
His stats are not very impressive. However, Peterson should help the team practice and maybe earn some defensive minutes as an upperclassman.
The ABJ's Bob Dyer eloquently responded to an ignorant question from a UA professor: Why do high school sports exist?
You'd assume such a question would come from that annals of Kent State University, but no.
