Akron’s signing class is up to 17 with today’s five, formal additions.
Of the additions, running back Abraham Alce really stands out. Alce is a three-star running back that’s had a lot of Power 5 schools to pick from but ultimately felt like Akron was the best fit for him. Alce doesn’t have a composite score from 247sports.com yet, but Alce has a three-star rating by the website and is listed at 6-foot, 224 pounds.
