Benedictine forward Nick Harney will be one of at least four recruits for Akron in 2011.
The 6-foot-7 senior told the Plain Dealer he will attend Akron, after he scored 23 points in a win over the King James All-Stars in Barberton at the King James Shooting Stars Classic.
Despite being a senior, Harney will not be eligible until 2011 because of grades. Like Darryl Roberts, Harney will be able to recover his fifth year of eligibility if he makes sufficient progress toward a degree under the NCAA's Rule Prop 48.
Akron's other recruit for 2011 is Dylan Ennis, a 6-0 point guard out of Chicago, originally from Ontario, Canada. Sometime next week, I'll go over which other players Akron is targeting for that recruiting class.
