Zips haven't offered yet, but a player that looks like we should keep an eye on is Elijah Macon of Columbus Marion Franklin and who's AAU team is All-Ohio Red. Elijah is a 6-7, 200 lb. PF whom Rivals gives 4-stars and ranks as the #12 PF in the nation.

He's only received a single offer thus far, from USC, so grades must be an issue?

Here is Elijah Macon's Rivals.com bio.

Terry Bowden. Keith Dambrot. Rick Rembielak. Chuck Amato. How ya like dem apples, Terry Pluto?! This is AKRON!

Updated to include Rozier who looks to be a very intriguing prospect. Already starting to see a trend with the offers for the 2012 class. Four of our eight known offers at this point are PG's (Harrison-Docks, Moore, Ridenour and Rozier).

If Nyles Evans decides to walk-on @ UA, do you think that would change our recruiting philosophy for next year?

I doubt we would want to be relying too much on a walk-on with grade issues to shore up our PG position. In 2012 Abreu will be a junior, Brian Walsh (who is supposed to be seeing minutes at PG next year) will be a senior. Your only other two guards will be Justice and Ibitayo who all reports have being more SG. If you can get a top level PG to come in for 2012 you have to jump at that opportunity. I for one don't want to go through any more season of watching us try to convert SG's over to PG.

Two updates. The Zips have offered Walsh Jesuit SG Evan Moore. Michigan PG Chris Harrison-Docks has committed to the Butler Bulldogs.

Just because, my butt! This is must-have chart. It shouldn't be buried in the middle of any one thread, but should be pinned by itself where it's easily accessible for reference. This will save hundreds of wasted posts over the years where people try to sum up what's shown here at a single glance. My only question is the way that Green, Harney and Treadwell are shown. I think it makes sense to use a consistent Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior to reflect expected athletic eligibility. For redshirts like Green, I think it would read a little easier to use something like Freshman*, Sophomore*, etc., with * identified as redshirt in a table at the bottom of the chart. For players like Harney and Treadwell, I think it would also read a little easier if they were shown as Freshman**, Sophomore**, etc., with ** identified as academic exemption or some term like that in the table. Having a table with asterisks would also allow other comments for players with extenuating circumstances. Nice work!

We got a verbal!!

6'/2012/PG/Carmelo Betancourt via San Juan, Puerto Rico has committed to the University of Akron. Betancourt plays on the 19U National team. Was seeing interest from UCF, Georgetown, Villanova, Miami FL, and Virginia...

Is this the start of a Puerto-Rican Pointguard Pipeline?

Gilliam has 2 years remaining. But Walsh has 3.
