Would be a shoo-in for the all-name team..

 

 

"Jennings throws it up... Jock rises above the defender... 'BOOM'! TOUCHDOWN AKRON!" 

 

Announcer's dream right there. Or there's this classic... 

 

(Per a pronunciation website, Boum is pronounced Boom, so I hope that's how he pronounces it, too.)

While just killing time scrolling twitter every day I see a ton of offers given out by Akron.  It's overwhelming and impossible to keep track of so I haven't been posting them. but would you guys want me to post every offer I see?

 

Absolutely, and please organize them by date offered, alphabetically by the recruits last name, the recruits position and state in which the recruit resides (and when available by 247 composite number of stars). If it's not too much trouble please include the recruits height, weight, and grade point average. Please do not use Excel and make us do our own sorting; just prepare multiple lists. Thanks.

A separate sheet detailing the same information for preferred walk-ons would also be helpful.

I suppose. That database is fantastic. I've never seen that before.  I was going to say I've easily seen over 100 offers.

Yeah they certainly all aren't going to be on there, but its a close enough list IMO. I wouldn't try and spend all that time follow offers lol.

Look at that. You practically outsourced this task and didn't even know it. Congratulations on not having to follow @Zipmeister's requests. 🤣

This information and details is so good.  It shows the coaching staff is going after the top players, and in the past, it seems like they did not pursue quality.  Only need to land a few top players each year to be ultimately successful in the win/loss column.  

I asked in the past and did not get an answer to the following question.  How is this information on 247/Rivals/Scout updated?  Is it from the coaching staff?  I remember Bowden saying he does not communicate recruiting status to these sites.  If anyone has details on how this works, please reply.  As always, I do not like speculation.  

Go Zips!!!

Maybe not every one but at a minimum I think if the first name is Buom or the last name is Jock we need to post it 😄
