Akron got its quarterback which, despite the roster's depth, is an annual challenge for every team.
Jordan Miller, a pro-style passer from New Philadelphia, verbally committed Thursday to Akron, his only scholarship offer.
Miller is sort of inexperienced, only having started two games his sophomore year and 10 his junior year. His accuracy (101 of 216 passing) is a concern, but Miller possesses a strong arm.
Iowa, Michigan, Boston College and Kansas had been in contact with Miller, but understandably, they wanted to see if he could improve his accuracy before offering a scholarship. Miller is only 6-foot-2, but can run the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds.
