Griz FB Recruit: Kraig Akins


Rivals.com is reporting that the Montana Grizzly football coaching staff is recruiting Kraid Akins from Thurston high school in Springfield, Oregon. The 6′-1″ 265 pound, Akins is primarily receiving most of his recruiting interest as a offensive center, but is also an all state defensive lineman and punter to boot. Just for good measure he also played a little at running back to also.

Last season Akins was named first team All league as a Offensive line man, defensive tackle and punter. He was also named All State 5A first team O .Line and second team D. Line.

I read where Akins has recently slimmed down some from last year and plans to switch to the Offensive center spot, where most college are projecting him to play at the next level, to the center spot. It is said that he has really helped his quickness with the weight reduction.

On defense Akins recorded 31 solo tackles and 21 assists last season for 42.5 total tackles. He also accounted for 33 punts with a total yardage of 1067 and a 32 yard average. Fifteen of his punts were within the 20 yard line. Akins was also used as a short yardage running back at times for Thurston high school. On 11 carries rushed for 46 yards and 4 touch downs.

Akins runs the 40 yard dash in 5.2 seconds, with a 24 inch vertical, and a 325 maximum bench press. I am not sure though whether these stats were taken before or after his weight reduction.

Akins holds only a single offer, from Western Oregon, but quite a few D-1 FBS and FCS teams are showing a lot of interest right now with Air Force, Army, Boise State, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Oregon State, and UCLA most involved.
