Six future members of the Akron Zips football are on campus according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Judging from the players who will ultimately play, coach Terry Bowden successfully kept the oral commitments of some of the recruits that former coach Rob Ianello received oral commitments from while he was still here.
The players who will tentatively join the program include:
Rodney Carroll from Locust Grove Va., a transfer from Hargrave Military Academy, an offensive lineman who had drawn interest from several colleges in the mid-Atlantic states.
Ben Cunningham, who will enroll early from Medina High School, a safety who gave former coach Rob Ianello a commitment back in August.
Malachi Freeman a defensive back transfer from Nassau Community College with some punt return skills.
Tyrell Goodman from Yonkers N.Y., a quarterback who was voted Class A Player of the Year by the New York Sportswriters Association. Goodman played QB for Ianello’s alma mater.
Albert Presley from Marietta, Ga., a defensive end transfer from Dean College.
De’Andre Scott from Frederick, Md., defensive back transfer from Hargrave Military Academy.
