2015 Akron Football Recruiting: Wayne Clarington Commits

Wayne Clarington becomes the first addition to the Zips 2015 class.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Terry Bowden and the Akron Zips got their first commitment of the 2015 recruiting class when Wayne Clarington gave his verbal consent on June 6th. Clarington is being recruited as a weak-side defensive end out of Champagnat Catholic School (Hialeah, FL). Clarington helped Champagnat win the FHSAA Class 2A State Championship.

Listed at 6-3.5, 230 Clarington has good height but could add some more weight if he is planning on having his hand on the ground. 247Sports lists him as a 2 star prospect while other websites have him unrated. Getting commits out of Florida can be tough for MAC schools as it is a coveted hotbed for recruits and this is a good sign for the program that they are able to compete in the state.
