A 2 star recruit who had many offers from schools similar to Akron.  I am just curious on why we are committing to and/or signing so many tight ends.  

Good question. Ognenovic is gone after this year no matter what. I’m wondering if there will be 1 or 2 scholarship tight ends transfer out before the 2022 season begins. Also, it’s possible some of the scholarship tight ends listed on the roster aren’t at spring ball and we haven’t been notified as of yet.

Could this be our new "Z" logo on the chin straps of the commits?

Designed by the the 3rd grader learning Clip Art who created the flying baseball G for the Guardians. 

 

I like the TE room going forward. We have MASSIVE targets on the inside for the QBs to hit on seem routes and whatnot. Hopefully they have hands and can block too.

It's the logo of SportStar Athletics, they make chinstraps/helmet hardware.

Thanks. I can breathe easier now.

Kylon Wilson was on campus. I’m not sure if we’ve offered, but I suspect we will. HS highlights are below. He’s a smaller player, but he’s a playmaker..

Jean Louis III was also on campus. No offered listed yet, but one is probably coming. HS highlights are below.

Darius Whiteside II was on campus last week and has an Akron offer.

Michael Kilbane was also on campus last week and has an offer, but we have some serious competition. He already has 11 Power 5 offers and 22 total according to Rivals.

Jake Cook was also in, who we’ve offered, but he’s a rising sophomore. If I were a betting man I’d bet he will see some Power 5 offers soon.

Marcus Moore Jr was on campus with some teammates. He has an Akron offer.

Andrew Marshall was also on campus. He has an Akron offer. Listed as WR and OLB, but he’ll be a linebacker.

Add OL Anthony Whigan to the committed list. red white and blue wow GIF by Bomb Pop
I didn’t even have a chance to add him as a potential transfer as he is listed as entering today and committing today.

Looks like an interior OL from Penn State. Hell yes!

 

Edit: Looks like he played on interior at PSU, but was maybe recruited as a tackle. At the very least seems versatile. Was also a 4 star recruit to Penn St.

What a massive pickup! He’s an athlete playing on the OL and can play anywhere on the OL. He’ll have 1 year of eligibility left. It all starts up front and the Zips are going to surprise a lot of people this year.

Sorry, this should have been under the 2022 thread. I got a little too ahead of myself due to my excitement.

no worries brother - happens to the best of us (atleast once).

What a fantastic pickup.  I posted many times that we need to sign 2 experienced OL and we got Banes and Whigan.  All of our returning offensive linemen were So or R-So, and with the covid year, this would have been their 3rd or 4th year, so there is no youth excuses.  We have experience and with the good freshmen signings and Banes and Whigan to bridge the gap, the offensive line should be a strength for years to come.  

In Joe We Trust!!!!!

On a quick run through of the films, I would love to get Kilbane, Moore Jr., Cook and Marshall.  The tape on Moore is off the charts.  As long as grades aren't an issue, he could anchor our line for 4 years starting with his freshman year.
