Zips extend another offer

Marquise Simmons
is a 6-foot-7 forward from Maryland whom Akron hopes to reel in this recruiting year.
The Zips have offered a scholarship to Simmons, a three-star player, according to
Here are some other recruiting updates:

    Brian Walsh, the sharpshooter with high-majors all over him, is still deciding between about 10 schools. calls him the 35th best shooting guard in the nation. Teams that have offered him include Memphis, Maryland, Xavier, Penn State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Ohio. The Pennsylvania native says Maryland and Xavier are the leaders.
    Cincinnati might hold the advantage for 6-9 Drazen Zlovaric, who plays like a typical European with great shooting and fundamentals. Zlovaric plans to attend the same prep school as a Bearcats 2008 recruit. That could seal it.
    Anthony Hitchens, whom calls Ohio's top true point guard, holds only an offer from Akron.
    In the near future, I plan to figure out what's up with Lance Jeter, the Zips' 2006 target who chose football at Cincinnati, rather than basketball at Akron. He's transferring, and the prevailing rumor says he wants to be a Zip.
