Kenny Anunkike runs a 4.6 in the 40-yard dash, is 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds. His coach calls the Lewis Center, Ohio tight end a relentless blocker.
But it's all a moot point. Rivals.com is reporting 1) that Akron offered him a scholarship and 2) Anunkike already committed to Duke.
Other tight end targets include Johnstown, Pa.'s Mike Cruz (whom they won't get) and Jermyn, Pa.'s Justin Virbitsky (whom no one else wants). A fourth tight end, Demetrius Boone from California, has similar stats as Anunkike, reports interest in Akron, but has not received a scholarship offer from the Zips coaching staff.
I took a look at the players who notified Rivals.com of their interest in Akron. Thirteen of them have offers from other schools, making them likely Division-I players and possibly the next scholarship offers for the Zips.
