Zips possibly add walk-on forward

By mrasor Published: May 30, 2010

Men's basketball is reporting that Darrell Blanton, a Chicago junior college player originally from Euclid, has signed a letter of intent to play at Akron.
A team source tells me that Blanton, a 6-foot-3 forward, will likely be a walk-on in 2010 if his grades are sufficient. This January, Blanton was named Player of the Week for his region after two games with cumulative stats of 52 points (64.7 percent from field), 17 rebounds, four steals, and two blocks.
Blanton played his freshman year at a Fort Scott Junior College in Kansas, where he scored 17.1 points per game and earned all-conference honorable mention honors. As a senior at Euclid, Blanton was Special Mention All-Ohio in Division I.
