Akron football has picked up a pair of commitments from area prospects in the past week.
Max Wynn, a linebacker from Centerville, announced his decision Tuesday.
“First off, I just want to thank God for giving me the ability to play the game of football,” Wynn wrote on Twitter. “I want to think my amazing parents for raising me the right way and showing me how to be the best person I can be.
“I want to thank my coaches for always pushing me and helping me through this difficult process.
“I want to thank all my teammates for having my back and helping me become the best player I can be. It has been a true blessing working with all of you.
“That being said, I am excited to announce my commitment to the University of Akron!!”
Wynn is a 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker who is not rated yet by either 247Sports or rivals.com despite having double-digit Division I offers.
Aside from Akron, he had several MAC offers as well as Syracuse, Cincinnati and Western Kentucky.
Wynn was a first-team All-GWOC pick last season when he made 83 tackles for the Elks, who went 10-2 and won the GWOC National East division.

Wynn is the 10th football player from the class of 2019 in the Cox Media Group Ohio coverage area to make a verbal commitment.
The eighth was Trotwood-Madison offensive lineman Jaison Williams, who announced last week he also intend to attend Akron.
Over the past weekend, Fairfield tight end Erick All committed to Michigan.
