A little housekeeping as the Akron Zips begin training camp for the fall season:

Who’s here:   Quarterbacks: Nick Hirschman (Colorado); Offensive linemen: Joe McNamara (transfer Wisconsin); Henry Orelus, (Florida State) Defensive lineman: Nordly Capi (Colorado State), Nmesoma Okafor (Nassau Community College), Moses McCray (Florida State).

Who’s gone:  Quarterbacks Marcus Prather and Steve Franco; tight end Will Fleming.

Here but in limbo:  Freshmen: Linebackers Deon’Tae Moore and Jerome Lane. Moore and Lane are practicing and have 21 days to do so, may study with the team, etc. but will sit out for the first year due to academic reasons.   Fellow freshman and defensive lineman Lavonne Gauthney is not in camp.

There but in limbo:  Linebacker C.J. Mizell
