University of Akron athletic director Hunter Yurachek reportedly tells Crain's Cleveland Business that Akron plans to bid next spring on the OHSAA state football finals.
"That's a way to bring even more high school students onto campus," Yurachek reportedly told the publication. "Our campus has transformed itself, and this is a recruiting tool for student-athletes and the general student body."
The state football finals are currently played in Stark County - at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium and Fawcett Stadium.
The OHSAA picked up options for the 2010 and '11 state championships in Stark County so nothing would potentially change until 2012.
