Akron Zips football signing class of 2018

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.

Meet Akron’s current signing class. Names in bold have been officially added Wednesday. Names in italics indicate junior college transfers. Asterisks (**) means that that player is currently enrolled. Ampersands (&) indicate those who join the team as walk-ons. The pound sign (#) indicates those who join the team as blueshirts.
