What's up with Michael Nanchoff? I haven't heard anything about him since he was drafted. Is he injured?
Way to go Darlington! Two in a row for Akron!
Unfortunately I can't really compare Kitchen to those other guys, because like a lot of students at Akron, I am a relatively "new" soccer fan. I have watched him in every game this season (b/c I'm an Akron student , you shouldn't be lambasted for not seeing a college team from an area you're not around) and he is good. He plays as a center-back for the U-20 national squad, but for us Porter had him play defensive MF, replacing two holding MFs from the previous year who left to go to the MLS (Ben Zemanski, Blair Gavin, both for Chivas). He single handedly did this job, arguably better than those two put together. As a freshman I'd say he was one of the strongest leaders on the field, very vocal and commanding. And he has this toughness to him...I can't think of a better way to describe him than machine-like. Additionally, while he may be a holding player, he does pose an offensive threat, having scored 6 goals this season. Here is one of them, if you are interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9ujU9XcnFE Hope this was somewhat helpful to you. And I will suggest this in the least snarky way possible: If you have a chance to check out the Akron soccer team next season, you really should. Our team doesn't rely on just playing physical, they actually control the game and possess in manner not often seen by other college teams, as some of the other posters mentioned here.
To my knowledge the 2011 recruiting class has been committed for a while...verballed at least. Don't know too much about the 2012 class yet, except that one of the nation's top defenders has verballed.
Nah our whole team is gone. I'm friends with one of the managers though and he said he'd be back for at least one more season so that's good haha
I am a student at Akron and I can tell you in the case of Perry Kitchen: yes.
