I reported a couple months ago that Toney Clemons was weighing an offer from Akron.
Well, this kid must be special. Scout.com recently upgraded Clemons to four-star status and ranked him as the nation's 10th best receiver.
Clemons is 6-foot-3 and comes from New Kensington, Pa. Problem is, Clemons also has scholarship offers from Michigan, Mississippi and Pittsburgh. The competition is so steep that Rivals.com does not even list Akron as a possibility.
I caught up with coach Dennis Mitchell via e-mail yesterday.
He is still constantly on the go. He just finished a major recruiting trip and now is preparing for fall.
Senior-to-be Natalie Sako is also busy. She is competing in the under-23 NACAC Championships in the Dominican Republic. Mitchell said this is the first Zips athlete to wear the Team USA uniform since national champion Christi Smith in 2000.
Jeremy Sallee is a hard worker and bright guy.
That's why he has a chance to succeed at Akron, a story on the Pulse-Journal from Liberty Township says. Sallee transferred to Akron after a successful year at Case Western Reserve University.
